Here's another special SteynPost in which Mark answers questions from Mark Steyn Club Founding Members from around the planet. This special video edition of Mark's Mailbox includes questions on post-Christian Europe, Tommy Robinson and Sting, with a little bit of cultural appropriation just to get your weekend off to a swell start. Click below to watch:
[PS We apologize for the erroneous illustration halfway through: Mark was recalling the famous comparison William Mann, the music critic of The Times of London, made in 1963, comparing the Aeolian cadence in the Beatles' "Not A Second Time" with the end of Mahler's "Song of the Earth". And he remarked that, to be able to do that, you have to know who Mahler is. And, alas, his point was illustrated with a picture of Marley - as in Bob, the late black Jamaican reggae artiste. Who is different from Mahler - as in Gustav, the late German Jewish non-reggae artiste. Which rather makes Mark's point, although not quite in the way he intended. We regret the error. PPS If you like Mahler, try Mark's new audio serialization of The Time Machine.]
Mark will be back on air later tonight for the second in our brand news series of nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time. This one's a cracker, so don't miss it. And there'll be more from The Mark Steyn Show this Sunday with a special video edition of Steyn's Song of the Week.
Mark's Mailbox, SteynPosts and The Mark Steyn Show are made possible through the support of Founding Members of The Mark Steyn Club. Among the pleasures of Founder Membership is that you can enjoy our TV content in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you'd rather sample the above in non-visual form, please log-in here. We're excited to announce that our entire run of SteynPosts, starting with the very first edition, is now available in audio. You can find all those, plus some of the more memorable editions of The Mark Steyn Show, over in our Audio & Transcripts department.
Founding Members can also hit the comment threads and tear Mark's arguments to pieces. So, if you disagree with anything he said, or even with his choice of tie, feel free to log-in below and have at it.
If you haven't yet experienced the delights of The Mark Steyn Club, you'll find more information here. We'll be introducing more features later this month - including the first issue of our new newsletter, The Clubbable Steyn.
