Queen Elizabeth II died today at the age of 96, after reigning for 70 years. A statement made by Buckingham Palace said that she died “peacefully.” Her family was called to her side after doctors expressed concern for her health. The Queen made history as the longest reigning monarch in the UK’s history and the second longest serving monarch in global history. To put it into perspective, she reigned through 14 US Presidents, and for 30% of the time the United States has been a nation.

Elizabeth II became queen at the age of 27 after her father, King George VI, passed. She and her late husband, Prince Philip, had four children including Charles III, who will now become the head of the Royal Family. King Charles released a statement regarding the passing of his mother, “The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family. We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.” King Charles concluded, “During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held.”

Queen Elizabeth’s passing is felt around the world.

The Netflix movie is set to be released on the streaming service on December 23rd and in select theaters. However, the movie will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this Saturday, Sep 10th. The creator of the film, Rian Johnson said, “So much of why I’m so into making these is that they just do bring me an intense amount of joy.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio is hosting a Nine Inch Nails Fan Day on September 23rd. The event is taking place the day before a one-night-only performance at the Blossom Music Center and will go from 10am–5pm. While there, you can visit the band’s exhibit, watch a screening of their 2020 induction, take advantage of photo ops, perform NIN music with the Hall of Fame’s backup band, and buy exclusive merch. Perhaps the best part of the day will be the live Q&A with the band. If you’re part of the NIN Discord, you may be invited to participate in the Q&A in person. However, if you’re not Cleveland bound, the Fan Day will also be available to stream for free on the Hall of Fame’s YouTube channel or NIN’s social media accounts. If you’re ready to snag some tickets and attend the Fan Day as a whole, you can buy them here.
