Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 9-15

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began with a Steyn Song of the Week for baseball season.

~Mark's Monday Notebook took a brisk tour of the cultural scene, from Ted Kennedy on the big screen to Diamond & Silk getting stiffed by Big Social via the 90th birthday of a master musical satirist. Later, with Tucker Carlson, he mulled CNN's news priorities, and the British state's war on cutlery.

~On Tuesday Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg came to Congress to testify on his "monetization" of two billion people. Steyn considered a revealing moment in what became our most-read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Mark checked in with John Oakley in Toronto to address the left's war on free speech, the Saskatchewan bus crash and the de-humanizing effect of identity politics. Click below to listen:

With reference to the heartless Maclean's writer Steyn mentioned, there was a Twitter postscript.

~On Thursday Mark did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". First up was Robert Mueller's investigation without end, and the state of US federal justice. Click below to watch:

Next up Steyn and Carlson looked at Los Angeles' plan to house homeless people in your backyard.

~Late on Friday night the Pentagon, with its UK and French allies, launched an attack on Syria. That was one of the subjects, along with Viktor Orbán's election victory in Hungary and Paul Ryan's slo-mo retirement from Washington, in Mark's Weekend Notebook.

~Steyn's Saturday movie date was the remarkable new movie on Ted Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopechne and Chappaquiddick.

~Last night Mark concluded the latest in our series of nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time: Robert Louis Stevenson's enduring classic The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Click to hear Steyn read Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Six, Seven, Eight and Nine. Or you can go all the way back to Part One and have a good old binge-listen.

We'll have a brand new Tale for Our Time in a couple of weeks as part of our first-anniversary observances for The Mark Steyn Club, on which more below.

Dedicated followers of the New York court schedule (scroll down) may be interested to know that the following has now been postponed until 11.30am this coming Thursday, April 19th:

Case Name: STEYN, MARK vs. CRTV, LLC

Relief Sought: Confirm Award

There is plenty of disinformation out there regarding what happened, but, as Steyn put it, he is happy to let the Court speak, definitively.

Exactly a week later - April 26th - Mark will be appearing at the Ethan Allen Institute's 25th anniversary gala in Burlington, Vermont. The Green Mountain State is not exactly natural Steyn territory, but, if you're in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, upstate New York or Quebec, it's a short drive and Mark will be delighted to see you. You can find more details here - and get 15 per cent off the ticket price if you enter the promo code EAIMARK.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 2-8

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began with the hundredth anniversary of the Royal Air Force, marked by Steyn with a musical cavalcade.

~Mark's Monday Notebook examined a landmark month for murder in London and New York, NBC and NPR's grasp of Easter, and Islam and the logic of Islamo-leftie outsourcing to women and children: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to consider the contradictions between open borders for illegal immigrants and Orange Alert for US citizens. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet on immigration, offensive statuary, the deaths of South Africa's Winnie Mandela and Canada's Peter Munk, and much more. You can hear the full show here.

Clubland Q&A is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Steyn Club, see below.

~On Wednesday Mark mulled the shooting at YouTube and its perpetrator - a female vegan Iranian refugee enraged at "de-monetization" - in his column "The Grand Convergence".

~On Thursday Steyn did double-duty on "Tucker Carlson Tonight", first discussing the left's plan to use credit-card companies to put the squeeze on the Second Amendment, and then addressing Hillary Clinton's claim to have ":accelerated" the #MeToo movement. Click below to watch:

Mark returned to the subject of self-defense in light of a disturbing story out of London: "An Englishman's home is his proportionately responsive castle."

~On Friday Steyn launched the latest in our series of nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time: Robert Louis Stevenson's enduring classic The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. You can hear Mark read Part One here, and Part Two here. Steyn Club member Fran Lavery writes:

They say a good eye can catch a masterpiece from a fake in a blink, well, to my good ear, I'm catching that this one is going straight to the top of the charts of Mark Steyn's masterful readings of all thus far. I've already reached the edge of my nerves in anticipation for the next episode.

That will air tonight, Fran - and thank you for your thumbs-up. Tales for Our Time is made with the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are profoundly grateful.

~Our weekend movie date found Mark celebrating the centenary of a great American actor, and the star of Sunset Boulevard, Picnic, The Wild Bunch and many more, William Holden.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 26-April 1

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to our readers around the world. On this Easter morn, we have a movie on the meaning and a song for the season. While we're at it, Happy April Fool's Day and Happy 100th Birthday to the Royal Air Force, born this day in 1918 from a merger of the British Army's Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Navy's Royal Naval Air Service and thus the first freestanding, non-naval, non-army air force in the world.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began with Steyn celebrating the hundredth anniversary of an American classic, and all his media colleagues salivating as the Stormy clouds gathered. Mark addressed the latter with Tucker Carlson. Click below to watch:

~On Monday Steyn considered heroism, depravity and passivity in a dying France. It was our most-read piece of the week.

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

Afterwards the conversation turned to the latest twist in the "Russia investigation". Click below to watch:

A Se'nnight of Steyn, February 26-March 4

Happy Oscar Night to film fans around the world. Mark offers his take on three of the big contenders - Dunkirk, Darkest Hour and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - and on the most enduring star of these last nine decades.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:

The week began with an unusually triumphalist Song of the Week from Mark: "We Are the Champions."

~Steyn's Monday Notebook featured a re-assassinated president, a dress-up prime minister, and a truly brave scientist: it was our most-read piece of the week. Later he joined Tucker Carlson to discuss one of the biggest stories of our time - the abolition of the sexes. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday saw the final installment in one of our most popular Tales for Our Time - John Buchan's prototype man-on-the-run thriller, The Thirty-Nine Steps. You can hear all this week's concluding episodes: Part Ten, Part Eleven and Part Twelve. But, if you've yet to get going on this nightly radio serialization of Great Power intrigue before the Great War, start with Part One, and enjoy yourself - as Steyn Club Founding Member Melanie Cooke did:

Great story, great performance! Thank you Mark. Any chance of more Buchan.... say maybe Greenmantle?

Thank you, Melanie. Mark is definitely considering more Buchan, and maybe even Greenmantle. For those new to our audio serializations, you can find all our previous tales - by H G Wells, Conan Doyle, Jack London, Conrad, Kipling and more - here. Tales for Our Time is made possible through the support of Mark Steyn Club members, for which we are profoundly grateful. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.

~Midweek found Mark back in his home town of Toronto for a rare in-studio appearance with 640's John Oakley. It was a wide-ranging conversation from Bollywood Barbie Justin Trudeau to American gun rights to the general uselessness of Twitter. Click below to listen:

Mark and John had so much to bat around they returned for a second round after the break:

~On Thursday Steyn revived his thesis on Anglosphere solidarity. His evening appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" provided a couple of forlorn postscripts - an insane prosecution in France, and South Africa's descent into depravity.

~The week ended with a brand new video edition of Mark's Mailbox - on Afghan empathy, Trudeaupian flaunting, constitutional virtue, and the algorhythmic future. Click below to watch:

We hope you'll tune in!

A Se'nnight of Steyn, February 19-25

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began with Presidents Day in the United States. Steyn celebrated with a musical cavalcade - 45 songs for 45 presidents: You can hear Washington to Cleveland here, and Benjamin Harrison to Donald Trump here.

~Outside the US, Presidents Day is just another Monday: Mark's Monday Notebook featured lunatic prosecutions in England and an unusually sane court verdict in Canada - plus Steyn in conversation with The National Post. Click below to watch:

Later, Mark joined Tucker Carlson on TV to discuss the new authoritarianism - and who's behind it.

~On Tuesday Steyn hosted a brand new Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet - on everything from American guns to Bermudan gays. You can hear the full broadcast here. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.

~On Wednesday Mark highlighted two examples of the secular progressive European state's remorseless submission to Islam. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Thursday Steyn kept his regular date with "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discuss CNN's fiasco of a "Town Hall" on the Parkland school shooting. Click below to watch:

~The week ended with a rare error at SteynOnline, as Mark accidentally skipped an episode in our current Tale for Our Time - adding an unnecessary and impenetrable plot complication to John Buchan's prototype man-on-the-run thriller, The Thirty-Nine Steps. Fortunately, we righted the ship, and you can hear all this week's episodes in order as follows: Part Three, Part Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine. And tune in tonight for Part Ten! Steyn Club Founding Member Debra Milligan is enjoying it:

Oh! What a corker! I have read this book twice and it is worth reading another time. Takes you back to a time that is no more. Which is what good fiction does!

For those new to our audio serializations, you can find all our previous tales - by H G Wells, Conan Doyle, Jack London, Conrad, Kipling and more - here. Tales for Our Time is made possible through the support of Mark Steyn Club members, for which we are profoundly grateful.

~Steyn's weekend column returned to the subject of the Florida school shooting, and the abysmal and disgraceful performance of the Broward County Sheriff. Our Saturday movie date also featured a police chief accused of doing too little, the Best Picture Oscar nominee Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Tales for Our Time and much of our other content at SteynOnline is funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club.

Mark's cat album Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, featuring his own groovy feline Marvin on the cover, continues to attract dozens of five star reviews at Amazon. This week Zoe B is the latest to cheer:

Five Stars
Fun collection of parodies.

Thanks, Zoe. Glad you found it fun, but they're not "parodies" - Mark says they're sincere and heartfelt, and he means every word and note. Feline Groovy is available on CD - and, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes. Or you can pick it up direct from the Steyn store.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with a triumphalist edition of our Song of the Week.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, February 12-18

Happy Presidents Day weekend to all our American readers. We will mark the occasion tonight with a special edition of our Song of the Week. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began with Steyn in the Rockies (you can find a couple of radio moments from his visit here), but his heartstrings strung out along the Mason-Dixon Line: "Rock-a-Bye Your Baby With"... a Magyar melody?

~Monday saw a flurry of lively stories from the Obamas' official portraits and a Supreme Court justice's election analysis on Mark's appearance with Tucker Carlson, and self-deporting dreamers and canine glass ceilings in Steyn's Monday Notebook - plus an update on the choked toilet of DC justice. On that last point, we thank everyone around the planet who's helped keep Mark in the game in the interminable Mann vs Steyn climate-change hockey-stick case, either by buying his book on Mann's damage to science or by picking up a SteynOnline gift certificate.

~Notwithstanding the above cornucopia of stories, on Tuesday many major newspapers and network news shows continued to obsess about an entirely routine remark by US Attorney-General Jeff Sessions: Mark considered the matter in "Too Stupid to Survive (Extreme Sports Edition)". It was our most-read piece of the week.

~Wednesday was Valentine's Day, celebrated by Steyn and his guests with poetry, music and cuisine on an extra-romantic edition of The Mark Steyn Show. (The Mark Steyn Show is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see below.) Later, he joined John Oakley on Toronto's AM640 for a knockabout tour of the lighter news stories, mysteriously cut off when things turned serious. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Steyn kept his regular date with "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discuss the most appalling story of the week: the Valentine's Day massacre at a Florida high school.

~On Friday Mark launched the latest in our series of audio adventures, Tales for Our Time, and, as he put it in his introduction, it's a corker: John Buchan's prototype man-on-the-run thriller The Thirty-Nine Steps. For Part One click here, and for Part Two here. And tune in tonight for Part Three! Steyn Club member Holly cheers:

Hooray! I love this book, dare I hope that we will hear Greenmantle as well?

Well, Greenmantle's too hot for the BBC these days, Holly, so Mark may have to step into the breach. For those new to our audio serializations, you can find all our previous tales - by H G Wells, Conan Doyle, Jack London, Conrad, Kipling and more - here. Tales for Our Time is made possible through the support of Mark Steyn Club members, for which we are profoundly grateful.

~Steyn's Saturday movie date offered a cinematic bonus to our Tale for Our Time - Alfred Hitchcock's classic film version of The Thirty-Nine Steps. Also among our weekend diversions this Olympic season: Mark gets his skates on.

Tales for Our Time and much of our other content at SteynOnline is funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that: in fact, there's more free content at SteynOnline than ever before in our fifteen-year history.

Christmas has come and gone, but Mark's seasonal album with Jessica Martin, Making Spirits Bright, retains its glow through the chill of winter with some new post-Yuletide five star reviews at Amazon. Rick Pratt was pleasantly surprised:

Five Stars
Totally unexpected, and in a good way!

And Kevin M Moyles raves:

A Se'nnight of Steyn, February 5-11

In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began and ended with poetry. First up was Steyn's celebration of the bicentenary of Shelley's poem on the transience of glory: "Ozymandias". If you prefer a lighter versifying touch, Mark also presented a Song of the Week audio special on P G Wodehouse, songwriter.

~Mark's Monday Notebook looked at control-freak "social media", a re-Talibanized Afghanistan, and an unvetted cabinet minister. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~The ructions over the Nunes memo rumbled on through the week in Washington, as Mark analyzed with Tucker Carlson. Click below to watch:

On Tuesday he continued the discussion in another Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members live around the planet. You can hear the full show here.

~On Wednesday Mark returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder the latest tranche of texts from FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Click below to watch:

~Thursday's brand new SteynPost found Mark among the empathizers. Click below to watch:

SteynPosts are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more on the Club, see below.

~On Friday the 2018 Winter Olympics opened. Mark celebrated with a nostalgic recollection of the dark day when Britain gave Canada the brush.

~For our Saturday screen date Steyn marked the centenary of one of his favorite actresses, Ida Lupino. And he and his guests returned to the subject of poetry for some romantic verse plus classic love songs and seductive cuisine in a pre-Valentine edition of The Mark Steyn Weekend Show.

The Mark Steyn Show and much of our other content at SteynOnline is funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that: in fact, there's more free content at SteynOnline than ever before. But we are providing Club members with a few extras, including the aforementioned Sunday Poem, and participation in our Clubland Q&As. You'll find more details about The Mark Steyn Club here. And, if you have a pal who'd enjoy Mark's video readings of Kipling & Co, don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership (not to be confused with our SteynOnline gift certificates).

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
