Happy Columbus Day!

In 1492, Columbus arrived in America and promptly enslaved the indigenous peoples here. For a country that then spent the next five centuries picking off natives, this seems apropos for a holiday.

Places such as Berkeley, Calif. and Vermont have eschewed the Columbus celebration and opted to call this day Indigenous Peoples Day, which to us here at Decline and Fall Studios sort of seems akin to an uncomfortable cough in the middle of an uncomfortable silence in the middle of an uncomfortable conversation.

But hey.

Hope you have a good one!

Onward,
The Decline + Fall Studios team
