  • Ship of Fools -- Mark Steyn interviews Tucker Carlson in 2018

    04/26/2023 6:18:36 PM PDT · by TChad · 4 replies ^ | 4/26/23 | Mark Steyn
    For the course of its six-year run, Tucker Carlson Tonight was without doubt the best show on American cable news - and, in defiance of the usual trajectory, got better and better as the years went by. Absent TCT, primetime at Fox is a lot more boring, predictable, and irrelevant to anything that matters. Tucker will do just fine, and we can't wait to see what's next for him - and 99 per cent of the things that will be leaked about him in the coming days will be total bollocks.Steyn was privileged to appear on the show every week...

    It's Easter and Passover at SteynOnline. This column has become something of a tradition here at this time of year: my thoughts on Mel Gibson's big blockbuster from just shy of twenty Easters ago. Mel has spent the last decade getting a little crazier with every year that passes.... Surprisingly, there have been no attempts by Mr Gibson or anyone else to replicate the success of this film, but back in 2004 it was impressive not just cinematically but as an interesting business model for bypassing Hollywood: The headline on the Washington Post review summed it up: "'Passion' Is A...

    Maybe it's age, but I'm starting to warm up to the God of the Old Testament big-time. That's the one you're not supposed to like. The one you're supposed to feel embarrassed by. Even outraged. To hear religion-hater Richard Dawkins (and his tedious hordes of mini-mes) tell it, the Old Testament God is the personification of all cosmic vice. In Dawkins' words, he is "arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction". My immediate response is: okay—maybe he was unpleasant at times. Who isn't? And besides, anyone who ever does anything big is "unpleasant" every once in a while. Goes...

    Question: What's the connection between the Muslim call to prayer and Fred Astaire? Answer: Night and Day You are the one Only you beneath the moon and under the sun... Well, that's the way Cole Porter told it, some of the time: His biggest hit was supposedly inspired by hearing the muezzin summon the faithful in Morocco during one of Cole's Mediterranean wanderings. If so, it must rank as Islam's greatest contribution to American popular music (along with "What Is This Thing Called Love?"). Morocco-wise, it seems more attuned to the country's nocturnal near namesake in Manhattan: "The crowds at...

    Two years ago today - February 17th 2021 - I was getting ready for another guest-hosting stint on the EIB Network when my friend Kraig Kitchin, the founder of Premiere Radio Networks and (since Kit Carson's death) Rush's acting "chief of staff", telephoned with devastating news: a year after his diagnosis of advanced lung cancer, Rush had died that morning. We had all known, since the day he announced his condition, how the story ends - but he had fought against it so hard just to be here for tomorrow's show, or the day after that, the news still came...

    The Mark Steyn Show ^ | February 13th, 2023 | Mark Steyn
    Mark Steyn continues his comeback after two heart attacks. He is using 'Steyn Online' for his platform. In the latest episode he discusses what is wrong with GBN news and answers several questions from his email bag. He also muses over the reaction of the British press to his show. Unlike most outlets, he points to the prosecution of J6 protestors as the cause of general complacency in the American public... very well worth watching. I hope he goes back on radio here in the States.

    The "niche Canadian" (thank you, The Guardian) returns! Welcome to the first of Mark's post-cardiac Steyn Shows - with all due thanks to Audrey and his other French nurses and doctors, and no thanks whatsoever to the duplicitous weasels of GB News. On today's show he welcomes back three of his most popular guests - Leilani Dowding, Alexandra Marshall and Eva Vlaardingerbroek - for a look at different aspects of the Big Picture, from the war on farming to the war on basic biology. They also find time to mull the British state censors at OffComm and the death of...

    Reports of Mark Twain's Steyn's death are greatly exaggerated. For his first on-camera appearance in two months, please click above. ~Aside from anything else, Mark is fully committed to staying alive at least long enough to be buried at sea during this year's Mark Steyn Cruise. He may eschew his traditional leap over the orchestra pit for the Steyn Show finale, but rest assured, his terrific line-up of guests - including Eva Vlaardingerbroek, Mister Snerdley and Michele Bachmann - stand ready to pick up the choreographic slack. This is our first post-Covid cruise and you won't want to miss it:...

    I hope my favorite Rush substitute is doing well with his recovery. Someone has been updating his webpage steynonline... they left this message:Mark is recovering from his two heart attacks, but the show must go on. 2023 still started out with a bang at SteynOnline. In case you missed it, here's how the last week looked...GBN had been continuing his show with guest hosts but they didn't stream one today. Viewers have been bombarding them on Twitter with requests for information on Mark... no reply so far. He had said he hoped to go home to New Hampshire after he...

    Greetings and welcome to this week's edition of Laura's Links. I know you're used to my intros containing a mix of anecdotes, assorted snark and little vignettes from my real life. But this week, in light of current events, I'm changing it up. This week, I simply want to focus on Mark Steyn himself and his recovery from not one, but two heart attacks. I'd like to use this small corner of his legendary website (the precious and unique uppity Jewish mother safe space that he grants me), nestled within the almost superhuman quantity of prose, shows, music, reviews, obituaries...
  • Go Where the Journeyman Leads: Steve McQueen and Nevada Smith

    Steve McQueen was in the middle of his career's big hot streak when he made Nevada Smith in 1966, between The Cincinnati Kid and The Sand Pebbles. He had the momentum of The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape behind him, and The Thomas Crown Affair and Bullitt in the near future. In retrospect, things would probably never be better for the actor, and though it wouldn't be until 1974 that he officially became the highest paid actor in the world, that pyrrhic honour would ultimately (and inevitably) be the beginning of the end. Like so many of his roles,...

    Just after 6.30pm Buckingham Palace announced:The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.That is how swiftly the transition happens: The Queen is dead; long live the King. So the man and woman who arrived at a Scottish castle as Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will depart just hours later as "the King and the Queen Consort".Just forty-eight hours ago, the Queen was pictured with her newest prime minister, having invited her to form "a government in my name".

    Joseph McBride's 1982 collection of interviews with Howard Hawks, the director says that he wanted to get the rights to Ian Fleming's Bond series, but that he was scooped by Cubby Broccoli, his former assistant director. When I read that, I spent twenty giddy minutes trying to imagine the alternate universe where Howard Hawks produced or even directed From Russia With Love, Goldfinger and On Her Majesty's Secret Service. I'm still not sure if it would have been a better place, but the closest we ever got to seeing that world is his 1939 adventure film Only Angels Have Wings....

    It's easy to forget that the years after the end of World War Two in America weren't just a quick change of gears from the arsenal of democracy to the economic boom. This uneasy, decade-long period might have been forgotten if weren't for film noir. Even though it had its genesis in pictures like The Maltese Falcon (1941), Shadow of a Doubt (1943) and Double Indemnity (1944), it was a genre in search of an era, and it found it with the return of the first demobbed G.I. Former soldiers appreciate Nick Garcos in Thieves' Highway, director Jules Dassin's 1949...

    The weekend seizure of a Texas synagogue by a "British man" is the umpteenth example of "Let's pretend that the 37,893rd incident of Islamic terrorism is anything but Islamic terrorism". The dirty stinking rotten corrupt FBI (whom the pom-pom girls of Conservative Inc still make goo-goo eyes at) immediately announced that the "British man"'s act was "not specifically related to the Jewish community", so that's okay then, although presumably it was a bit unfortunate that some of the "Jewish community" wound up getting "detained" by the "British man", as the BBC delicately put it.You know, "detained", like you might be...
