We lost a great man recently in Christopher Hitchens. I know I’m a little late with posting about this but I just listened to SGU Episode 336 where the Rogues, George Hrab and Jamy Ian Swiss share their thoughts and memories of Christopher Hitchens.
The first time I heard of Hitchens was when I was running the SGU’s fansite and they interviewed him at TAM5. I didn’t think too much of it, he was just another interviewee to add to my online list at the time. It’s not until I downloaded SGU Uncut #2 and listened to the unedited interview that Hitchens caught my attention. It was awesome. Since then I think I’ve seen all of the debates he participated in that are available on YouTube. The man was a genius. I think the thing that impressed me the most about Hitchens was how well he used his words. This man was a master at the English language. He was a sniper with words. Everything he said I knew that that’s EXACTLY what he meant to say and how he meant to say it.
So yesterday I decided to look up any other Hitchens videos I might have missed and I came across this awesome playlist of (at the time of this posting) 71 videos of Hitchens giving the Hitchslap to various people, religions and ideas. I just needed to share it with our readers.
