Morning Coffee (9/9/15)

Me elsewhere: I'm not sure how to feel about the Shannara trailer.

Today Queen Elizabeth II becomes England's longest reigning monarch, passing Queen Victoria. Let's look at some rarely seen pictures of the young Elizabeth. (You know you pay too much attention to these things when almost all the "rarely seen pictures" look familiar.)

NOPE: "Trump said that his experience at the New York Military Academy, an expensive prep school where his parents had sent him to correct poor behavior, gave him 'more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.'"

Speaking of: Nixon sent Trump a letter in 1987 saying Pat Nixon thought he should run for office. SO. (Yes, Dad, this one was for you.)

Sam Smith is doing the new Bond song. I am . . . underwhelmed by the choice, but had to bring you an article that features someone called Barbara Broccoli who is apparently a real person and not a Sesame Street character.

I really feel like Julie Plec understands me on a deep level.

I'm excited about PBS's new Civil War drama Mercy Street, but it's going to take some time to see Josh Radnor as an old timey surgeon without just giggling. (In the video linked there he says his character is arrogant. That must have been SUCH A STRETCH for him.) (I mean, because of his HIMYM character. I have no reason to think Radnor himself is anything but delightful.)

from being alive?"
