Is there a German compound word that means "charmed and frightened at the same time"?

Is there a German compound word that means [x]

Yes. (For all values of x.)

This concept is known as Alleideenworthaben.

Barbie doll drum sticks? Experiencing phantom ovary ache.

The drummer has some serious talent. My kid is almost exactly that age, and I'm impressed.

I'm really impressed a single tom (and barbie-doll drumsticks) can get you that far. Props to the drummer indeed!

My husband is a garage punk drummer. He likes the idea of having children someday, but he never has specifics -- except that "I will teach them rhythm. You sing, and I will teach them rhythm."

I believe these children are our future.

I was disappointed to open the video and discover it wasn't authentically medieval. Where's the psaltery?

Okay when people were saying Barbie Doll drumsticks I was expecting... pink drumsticks, maybe, not a little girl using actual Barbie Dolls as drumsticks. The reality was so much better.

I think Rammstein would agree, the girl drumming with Barbie Dolls is more metal than they are.

I am not seeing the Barbies - help? This is awesome, though.

I don't think they're actually barbies, on closer inspection i see a plastic maraca and a muffled mallet.

I was wrong about the drumsticks, in other videos you can see them clearer.

The video has been updated with a LOT of additional info since this post. (it had only 8,000 views at that time)

In particular: "And last - no, Cornelia is not using barbie dolls; it's a short drum stick wrapped with fabric to simulate the big drum, and a small maraca which simulates a snare drum."

(I wasn't sure about the Barbie Doll drumsticks, but that was the rumor at the time, and the tag was too irresistible not to include)
