Sometimes it's amazing what you learn by surfing the web's wormholes. It's a fine summer Saturday morning in here Satan City and already I've learned a dynamite new German word:

Backpfeifengesicht, a face in need of a slap. I really like the little forum (in the comments) on the term's etymology:

One small point of clarification: According to Duden Etymologie, a “Backpfeife” is probably called what it is because the blow whistles (pfeifen) when it hits the cheek (die Backe). In any event, Bill Kristol does indeed have a Backpfeifengesicht.

Precisely right: Bill Kristol, smug, unimagainative, sociopathic little rich fuck that he is, is one of those people who puts even the most serene in touch with their inner Hell's Angel (click for wish-fulfilling video).
As antidote to all that, here's another discovery: a guitar goddess smoking some Hendrix and Beatles.
