Mark Steyn

A Se'nnight of Steyn, May 13-19

It was a busy week, starting with the death of Doris Day, proceeding through the pardon of Conrad Black and the launch of De Blasio 2020, and ending with a Dutch triumph at Eurovision and the victory of Scott Morrison Down Under, about which Steyn will have more to say in the coming days. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~The week began with Steyn marking the centenary of "America's best loved Commie", and telling the convoluted story of "his" biggest hit, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".

~On Monday Doris Day died and Mark remembered their conversation on pooches and pictures: It was our most read piece of the week. Later that day he joined Tucker Carlson to consider Alyssa Milano's celebrity sex strike and that he knew Bette Midler before she was a virgin. Click below to watch:

~Tuesday's brand new edition of The Mark Steyn Show presented the first part of Mark's in-depth interview with Deep State Target George Papadopoulos:

Part Two of Steyn's Papadopoulos interview will air on Tuesday.

~On Wednesday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on the attempted Deep State coup against Trump, plus Brexit and Tommy Robinson and much more. You can listen to the full show here.

~On Thursday Steyn and Tucker Carlson pondered the latest Democrat to enter the presidential primary. He did it to Staten Island Chuck, he can do it to America.

~On Friday Mark returned to the pages of The National Post to celebrate the pardon of Conrad Black and bemoan the corrupt and depraved US federal justice system. Elsewhere in the Post they seemed under the impression that he'd been fired from America's Number One radio show. If so, no one told Steyn, and he'll be back behind the Golden EIB Microphone tomorrow, Monday, at 12 noon Eastern/9am Pacific.

~Our weekend diversions included Mark's appreciation of Doris Day on screen, and two Tales for Our Times audio specials to celebrate the series' second birthday - the first sampling some of Steyn's serializations of Conan Doyle, H G Wells, Jack London, Joseph Conrad, Scott Fitzgerald and more; and the second sampling some of the accompanying music by Elgar, Mahler, Brahms, Mussorgsky and more.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of The Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: They'll get to enjoy not only Mark's audio archive, all easily accessible from our brand new Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page, but also his latest tale, which launches this coming Friday.

On this second birthday of The Mark Steyn Club, we're delighted by all those who've decided to hop aboard for our third year. Brandon, a Florida Club member, says:

Congratulations on the success of the club! Thank you for all of the great content!!

My pleasure, Brandon. And Pauline, a Steyn Clubber from Scotland, adds:

Thanks Mark for a great two years of info and humour.

To mark our second birthday, our Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise has sold out, but, if you'd like to be waitlisted in case a cabin opens up, please email our excellent cruise manager. If you're one of our many European readers, we'll be announcing details of our first Mediterranean cruise in the next few days.

A new week at SteynOnline begins this evening with a special live-performance edition of our Song of the Week and continues with Mark's Monday guest-hosting stint on America's Number One radio show and Part Two of his interview with George Papadopoulos.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, May 6-12

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, mums, mas and maters among our readers. Mark has some songs for the season.

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

~The week began with two important milestones - the fortieth anniversary of the dawn of the Thatcher era, and the start of The Mark Steyn Club's third year. With respect to the latter, we thank all those First Week Founding Members from two Mays ago who've decided to sign up for another twelve months - and we marked our second birthday with a celebratory beverage, a brand new and user-friendly home page for Tales for Our Time, and a cavalcade of Non-Stop Nearly Number Ones, in which Mark talked to Chuck Berry, Men at Work, Julio Iglesias, Leonard Bernstein and other hitmakers about some of the not quite biggest-selling records of all time. For more on the Steyn Club, see below.

~On Monday Mark joined Tucker Carlson to consider the Democrats' increasing indifference to the results of elections. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Steyn addressed another reason to celebrate The Mark Steyn Club's second birthday: Everywhere else is being shut down. "The Post-Free Speech World" was our most read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Mark returned to the John Oakley show to discuss everything from government by fax machine to Harry and Meghan's choice of baby name. Click below to listen:

~On Thursday Steyn returned "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder the political classes' preference for Mushroom Man over Marlboro Man:

~On Friday we reached the thrilling conclusion of Mark's latest audio adventure, his serialization of the H G Wells classic The Island of Dr Moreau. Click for Part Ten, for Part Eleven, Part Twelve, Part Thirteen, Part Fourteen and Part Fifteen - or, for a good old-fashioned binge-listen right from the beginning, please click here.

Tales for Our Time is made with the support of the aforementioned Mark Steyn Club. If you've a friend who's a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: They'll get to enjoy not only this latest adventure, but also Mark's readings of Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Conrad, Kafka, Kipling, Gogol, Scott Fitzgerald, Jack London, Baroness Orczy and many more, all easily accessible from our brand new Netflix-style Tales for Our Time home page.

~Steyn's weekend column addressed "the village idiots of Brexit", the dark corruption at the heart of the FBI, and a comedian whose biggest laugh was a newspaper headline.

~Our weekend movie date mourned the passing of Spider-Man screenwriter Alvin Sargent with a film about a very different kind of web.

On this second birthday of The Mark Steyn Club, we're delighted by all those who've decided to hop aboard for our third year. Bobby, a Maryland Club member, says:

Keep up the good fight. Keep the lights of liberty lit.

We will, Bobby. And Richard, a Victorian Clubber from Down Under, adds:

See you on the cruise!

So we will, Richard - where we'll be doing all our regular features - The Mark Steyn Show, Song of the Week, Steyn's Sunday Poem - but live and on water.

A new week at SteynOnline begins this evening with our Song of the Week and continues through the week with more second-birthday observances.

~Our weekend movie date featured Mark's favorite sequel title: I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.

~Our marquee presentation this week was the continuation of our new nightly audio adventure in Tales for Our Time: Steyn's serialization of an H G Wells classic, The Island of Dr Moreau.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 22-28

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

~At the weekend we like to avert from our gaze from the grubby churn of world affairs. This week Steyn's tip of the hat to smaller pleasures included a farewell to composer Les Reed with the monster hit he wrote for Tom Jones, and a look back at Bob Fosse on the big screen.

On the Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, cabins are going spectacularly fast - and we're very nearly sold out.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 15-21

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to our readers around the world - and please keep in your prayers the more than 200 people murdered in attacks on Easter Mass at Sri Lankan churches and at hotels in Colombo. On this Easter morn, we have a movie on the meaning and a song for the season - and an especially timely Tale for Our Time: Steyn reads pertinent passages from Victor Hugo's Notre-Dame de Paris.

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

~The week began with a brand new edition of Steyn's Sunday Poem celebrating the bicentennial of Keats' Ode on a Grecian Urn - and a Song of the Week celebrating a song for sanctuary cities. Steyn's Sunday Poem is made possible by the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we're very grateful. We're about to celebrate the Club's second birthday, so, if you've been waiting to see if we're in it for the long haul before signing up, you'll find more details here.

~Mark's Monday Notebook explored woke razors, gay rugger and Theresa May's disturbing Internet crackdown.

~At the start of Holy Week, on Monday evening in Paris, Notre Dame cathedral began to burn. A few hours later Steyn joined Tucker Carlson to ponder the appalling symbolism of the fire. Click below to watch:

Mark's Tuesday column considered other aspects of the state of French Christendom: it was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Wednesday Steyn marked the fifth anniversary of an important innovation in virtue-signaling: the invention of the cardboard hashtag.

~On Thursday the Mueller report on Russian "collusion" was finally released. Mark and Tucker discussed the case live that night:

~On Good Friday there was more Mueller mulling when Steyn guest-hosted America's Number One radio show. His Weekend Notebook addressed the purging of Kate Smith, the Nazi dog-whistle of "Edelweiss", and the latest ruling from the new comedy commissars.

As for the above-mentioned Mark Steyn Club, if you've a friend who's a fan of classic fiction in audio, we hope you'll consider sending him or her a special Gift Membership: They'll get to enjoy not only this latest adventure, but also Mark's readings of H G Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, Conrad, Kafka, Conan Doyle, Scott Fitzgerald, Jack London, Gogol and many more.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, April 8-14

Later this morning Mark will be presenting the latest in his series Steyn's Sunday Poem. Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to him:

~The week began with Mark celebrating the iconic Broadway showtune, from Ezio Pinza and Frank Sinatra to Bob Dylan and Harrison Ford.

~Monday's brand new edition of Mark's Mailbox found Steyn addressing the emerging identity-group hierarchy, the betrayal of Brexit, posteriors regal and vice-regal, the bargain-basement price of a US election, Barbara Boxer's uncanny lookalike, and other lively topics. Click below to watch:

Mark's Mailbox is made possible thanks to members of The Mark Steyn Club, which is now now fast approaching its second birthday. You can find more details about the Steyn Club here.

Later Mark joined Tucker Carlson to ponder the present state of the Democrat Party and two of the left's biggest stars - Bernie and AOC:

~On Tuesday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet - and doing a bit of breaking news on the Israeli election and the rather more ad-hoc arrangements for change of government in the Sudan. You can listen to the full show, and Mark's answers on debt forgetfulness, Continental cover-ups, woke duchesses, the increasing shortage of hills to die on, and much more, here.

Also on Tuesday Steyn concluded the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - a double-bill of Rudyard Kipling science-fiction about the Aerial Board of Control. To hear Mark read As Easy as ABC, click here for Part One, Part Two and Part Three. Or, for a good old-fashioned binge listen starting with our first ABC tale With the Night Mail: A Story of 2000 AD, click here.

~On Thursday Julian Assange was arrested in London, gaoled for breach of bail, and a trial date set for his extradition to the United States. Mark and Tucker discussed the case live that night:

Also on Thursday Steyn mourned the stampede of fainthearted conservatives to "distance" themselves, gave a shout-out to the sort of chap they distance themselves from, Blazing Cat Fur, and tried not to giggle at culturally appropriated throat-singing: it was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Friday Mark joined Mike Rowe, Eric and Lara Trump and many others for a live-audience edition of "Fox & Friends", which almost made up for his humiliating defeat to Pete Hegseth in Tucker's Final Exam. His Weekend Notebook also addressed the rise of the transgingers ..and the transcatheters.

~Our Saturday movie date played The Death of Stalin for laughs.

As for the above-mentioned Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, cabins are going spectacularly fast - and we're very nearly sold out.

~On Thursday, Steyn swung by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to discover that the root cause of climate change is ...toxic masculinity:

~On Friday Mark launched the latest audio adventure in our series Tales for Our Time - a double-bill of Rudyard Kipling science-fiction about the Aerial Board of Control. To hear Steyn read Part One of With the Night Mail: A Story of 2000 AD, click here. To hear Part Two, click here.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 25-31

Happy Mothering Sunday to the many mummies, mams and maters among our readers in the Mother Country and various parts of the Commonwealth. In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:

~Mark's Monday Notebook considered cover-ups in Washington and Christchurch: it was our most-read piece of the week.

~On Thursday, with the bovine flatulence of the Green New Deal perfuming the air, Mark took a stroll down memory lane to the heyday of the climate apocalypse:

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 18-24

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

~The week began with St Patrick's Day and a song for the season.

~On Monday Steyn looked at the predictable response to the New Zealand mosque massacre: the usual calls for ever less free speech across the free world. It was our most-read piece of the week. Later Mark swung by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to expand on the theme. Click below to watch:

~On Tuesday Steyn hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions live from Mark Steyn Club members around the planet on Christchurch, Brexit, backstops, the information duopoly, neo-imperialism, and more. You can hear the full show here.

A Se'nnight of Steyn, March 11-17

Happy St Patrick's Day to all our Irish readers. We shall have a song for the season later today - and don't forget an authentic son and daughter of Erin, film producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, will be joining us on the Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise. More details below.

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

~The week began with Steyn cruising down the river from a Wimbledon tearoom to the Yangtze in throes of Maoist revolution.

~Mark's Monday Notebook considered Bush on Churchill and Trump, the criminalization of bad movie reviews, and Brexit betrayed.

~On Tuesday Steyn swung by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" to ponder childlessness and meatlessness. Click below to watch:

~Tucker Carlson found himself under fire this week when ancient tapes surfaced of him. In solidarity Mark published student-loan mogul Cary Katz's "smoking gun" video of Steyn outtakes which the loser litigant has introduced in evidence in one of his many lawsuits against Mark. It was our most-read and most-viewed piece of the week.

~On Thursday Steyn addressed Westminster's betrayal of UK voters: "Exit Brexit."

~On Friday Mark and Tucker marveled at the sudden disruption of Democrat diversity by the Great White Privileged Hope, Beto O'Rourke:

~For our Saturday movie date, Mark wished Batman a happy eightieth birthday.

As noted above Cary Katz and his phony conservative BlazeTV's many lawsuits against Steyn have prevented him writing or recording much in the last two years, so we are grateful for the ongoing popularity of the back catalogue. Mark's 2015 bestselling cat album, Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to his own groovy feline Marvin, has racked up a bunch of five-star reviews at Amazon, including this latest from M Cowan:

Great artist

So fun to listen to Mark sing....always brings a smile to my face!

Thank you, Mr or Ms Cowan. One day, years from now, we will get back to cats and be done with Katz. In the meantime, Feline Groovy is available on CD from the Steyn store or CD Baby, or for instant gratification via digital download from iTunes or Amazon.

If you missed the first Miller/Steyn Adorable Deplorable Tour, we'll be announcing new dates soon - and for Miller/Steyn fans for whom one night isn't enough there's always the Second Annual Mark Steyn Club Cruise, sailing from Vancouver through Alaska's Inside Passage to Glacier Bay and Ketchikan.
