Mark Steyn

The Merry Widow Waltz

WhatsApp

As I mentioned yesterday, tomorrow is EU Talent Day, whatever that is. Nevertheless, we've been marking it all weekend long. With another week of my life about to be lost to legal torments, I said yesterday that EU Talent-wise I was in the mood for some low, vulgar comedy. Twenty-four hours later, I find myself instead partial to pure, translucent beauty - of which there is an increasing dearth in our world. EU Talent Day was created at some Eurosummit in Budapest, and is observed each year upon the birthday of the great Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. With due respect to dear old Bartók, he's a bit beyond the remit of our Song of the Week department, so I thought I'd pick something by his fellow Hungarian, Franz Lehár - although, if ...

Deep-State Dumpster Fire

WhatsApp

Late yesterday afternoon, there was a livelier than usual Friday-night news-dump, when the Attorney-General of the United States announced that Robert Mueller had wrapped up his "Russia investigation" and there would be no further indictments. For two years, the prefatory "Russia" has been intended to give the word "investigation" more heft, to make it seem as if there was something more than let's-get-Trump-on-anything. But even the unlimited resources of a wretchedly corrupt federal justice system couldn't keep that going without something more than Michael Cohen's taxi medallions (only in America) and a few Russian troll farms, one of whom has amusingly decided to push back in court against Mueller and his showboating cronies. Other ...

EuroTrip

WhatsApp

I have a lousy week ahead of me, a se'nnight of non-stop litigious cockwombling. Which, even if one has right on one's side, is draining and depressing. So I find myself in the mood for some low comedy, and, as it's "EU Talent Day" on Monday, I thought I'd feature a quintessentially American take on the EU's talents. Among this picture's distinctions is the fact that it's Matt Damon's finest hour. Well, okay, finest three minutes. But maybe that's what he should stick to. We'll get to that later, as we celebrate the many pleasures of EuroTrip, which demonstrates a sounder grasp of geopolitical realities than most Hollywood product. I loved EuroTrip when it first came out in 2004. Well, okay, I loved the first two-thirds of it. It got ...

Following last year's sell-out maiden voyage, we decided to make the Mark Steyn Club Cruise an annual event. And so the second Steyn cruise will leave Vancouver on September 4th and sail through Alaska's beautiful Inside Passage to Glacier Bay and Ketchikan. I'll be doing double-duty, hosting the cruise, and also hosting live editions of The Mark Steyn Show at sea - with among others the great Dennis Miller...
