Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, January 8-14

Happy Sunday to our readers around the world. If you're in Hawaii, we hope this is the only incendiary incoming in your inbox this morning. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

The week began with the Golden Globe Awards, at which Oprah was sworn in as the 46th President. Click below to watch:

~Steyn's Monday column contemplated the west's descent into "The Endless Night of the Long Knives". It was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Tuesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A, taking questions from Mark Steyn Club members all around the planet on immigration, Islam and related matters. For more on The Mark Steyn Club, see below.

~Wednesday's Midweek Notebook found Steyn looking at sellouts, sepoys and superheroes - plus an unnerving performance on immigration by the President, who then made an equally startling course correction. Click below to watch:

~On Thursday Mark bade farewell to one of his favorite interviewers, Chicago radio legend Milt Rosenberg. He also tipped his hat to the late Keely Smith and her beautiful signature song.

~On Friday Steyn presented the latest exciting yarn in our series of audio adventures, Tales for Our Time. In view of the recent cold snap in Mark's corner of North America, he decided to read a most appropriate story by Jack London. You can find the first part of "To Build a Fire" here, and the conclusion here. We will have another piece of frosty fiction - this time from Russia - later this month. Steyn Club First-Weekend Founding Member Joseph Meade writes:

Thank you, Mark, for all of the stories. I do so enjoy hearing you read them.

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

~Mark's weekend column examined the ongoing corruption of federal justice as manifested in the Cliven Bundy case.

~For our Saturday movie date, and apropos of the President's concerns re "sh*thole countries", Steyn reviewed Hotel Rwanda.

Last year Mark was interviewed for a new documentary taking its title from the very last words of murdered film director Theo van Gogh, addressed to the Islamic fanatic who killed him. The documentary is now out:

You can rent it either from Vimeo (by clicking the button above) or from Amazon.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, January 1-7

In case you missed it, here's how the first week of 2018 looked to Mark:

~The New Year began at the stroke of midnight with Steyn celebrating the classic post-chimes singalong.

~On New Year's Day Mark looked back at the turbulent headlines of 2017.

~On Tuesday Steyn concluded that the New Year was looking pretty much like the same-old same-old.

~On Wednesday Mark expanded on some throwaway asides about the shallow opportunism of the Pope's Christmas message. It was our most-read piece of the week.

~This week Steyn made his debut TV and radio appearances of 2018. On Thursday he joined Tucker Carlson on America's Number One cable news show to look at the curious business arrangements of "feminist advocate" Lisa Bloom and her mother. The day before he checked in with John Oakley on Toronto's AM640 for a forceful tour of other women's issues from Teheran to Beverly Hills. Click below to listen:

~On Friday Mark presented an audio special looking back at some of the best live music from various iterations of his show over the years. The performers included Liza Minnelli, Paul Simon, and Everything But The Girl. Mark Steyn Club member Ken enjoyed it:

Bravo! I can't get over how good Mark sounded in the first number. I also confess to having been in love with Maria Muldaur - I mean, REALLY in love... Loudon Wainwright's icy-freeze song could qualify him as a defense witness in Mann vs. Steyn. How can one go on without citing each performance, and risk divulging spoilers?

Thanks, Ken. On the Town and much of our other content at SteynOnline is made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. For more details on the Club see below.

~For the weekend Mark checked out the new Churchillian movie, Darkest Hour.

Christmas has come and gone, but Steyn's cat album Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to his own groovy feline Marvin, continues to stack up five-star reviews at Amazon. We liked this post-holiday thumb's-up from Nancy:

Very much in the spirit of Disney's "Aristocats" movie. Being a cat lover may help, but either way, this is definitely fun music!

Agreed, Nancy. As it happens, the opening track on the album is from The Aristocats - and a real showpiece for the band. Feline Groovy is available on CD - and, for instant gratification, via digital download from Amazon or iTunes.

Our content at SteynOnline is funded by members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we're profoundly grateful. Don't worry, none of our regular features are being paywalled, or anything like that. Mark's columns on everything from big-picture demography to the big picture at your local multiplex will always be free and accessible to all. But we are providing Club members with a few extras, including our highly popular series of audio adventures of classic fiction Tales for Our Time, the latest of which will air this coming weekend, and participation in our Clubland Q&As, a new round of which Mark will host this Tuesday afternoon across the globe at 4pm US Eastern Time.

You'll find more details about The Mark Steyn Club here. And, if you belong to some cultural tradition that hands out Christmas presents on Thirteenth, Fourteenth or Fifteenth Night, don't forget our Steyn Club Gift Membership - or our SteynOnline gift certificates.

A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week. - and continues with Tuesday's Clubland Q&A live around the planet. We hope you'll join us!

A Se'nnight of Steyn, December 25-31

Happy New Year's Eve 2017 - and, for our Aussie, Kiwi and Pacific readers, Happy New Year's Day 2018! We have some movies for the big night, and Mark will be here later today to ring out the old with a song for the season.

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

~The week began with a live-performance seasonal edition of our Song of the Week. If you want it one mo' time before the Christmas sleighlist gets puts away for another eleven months, click below:

~On Christmas Day, Mark presented his traditional Yuletide cornucopia of songs and stories, carols and lessons, food and festive fun.

~On Boxing Day, after noting with envy Europe's holiday without end, Steyn set off for a week of grueling guest-hosting. After warming up with a brisk trot around the headlines on "Fox & Friends", he hosted America's Number One cable news show of the night. The topics ranged from the "Russia investigation" and its "dirty dossier" to Newsweek's breathless story on whether Trump is Nazifying Christmas. But this segment seemed especially to tickle viewers' fancy. Click below to watch:

~The following day Mark checked in with "Varney & Company" and then hosted Wednesday's top-rated show on all cable (Hallmark, AMC, FX, TCM, the lot) except for college football. A favorite sparring partner of Tucker Carlson's, Richard Goodstein, was first up that night. Click below to watch:

Later topics ranged from a rare sighting of a Democrat anti-Hillary joke to transgender Olympians.

~On Thursday Steyn hosted America's Number One radio show and then returned to "Tucker Carlson Tonight" for Tucker's top-rated quiz segment, in which Mark was put up against Lisa Boothe in a test of the year's headlines.

~On Friday Steyn offered a double dose of audio entertainment: first, another three hours behind the Golden EIB Microphone, and then his reading of a bonus New Year Tale for Our Time, Plum Duff. You can find Part One of our tale here, and Part Two here. Steyn Club Founding Member Fran Meaney enjoyed it:

How you maintain such quality in producing such quantity and variety of output is astonishing. We are the fortunate beneficiaries.

Thank you, Fran. But let it be said that Tales for Our Time and much of our other content at SteynOnline are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we're profoundly grateful. We will have a new audio adventure for you early in January.

~For the weekend Mark looked back at some of those we lost in 2017 - from singers and Saudis and psychopaths to cartoonists and conductors and call girls.

If you belong to some cultural tradition that hands out presents for Hogmanay, don't forget our Mark Steyn Club Gift Membership - or our Steynamite Specials over at the Steyn store.

A new week and New Year at SteynOnline begins by ringing out the auld. See you later!

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

~On Monday Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of HRH Prince Henry of Wales to the American actress Miss Meghan Markle. The IRS is popping the champagne corks.
