It is originally a poem by the German comedian Heinz Erhardt! He had a lot funny, short poems similar to "Das Reh". I actually knew this one before I knew the Edguy version of it :)
Who am I -- Spread my wings but I can't fly.
I feel sad -- I'm not good and I'm not bad.
I am bored -- I'm not Devil - I'm not God
I am nothing -- I'm just me ...

Hahaha, that's really awesome!

Today I had to buy the more expensive cricket food, which was kinda annoying, but the price was $9.29 so I guess it was ok :)

Yesterday, I was having an English lesson with my pupils :)

Listing all the names they knew about animals in English, one of them suddenly said "A Dragonfly!"

This really not a common knowledge, especially for a 10-year-old French pupil :P

As he's a metalhead, I, for a moment, thought he knew that because of Edguy... but no, it was because of some poster he has at home :P
Maybe it's better for you, mankind, not to know what's going on!

On Monday five exchange students from Germany arrived at my school. Today my friend said to me "Have you noticed that one of the exchange students looks like Sammet?". :D She was right, actually he does remind me of Tobi! And he's from Germany, so who knows if they're related or something. ;DD

Maybe you should give him an Edguy lesson! =D

But yeah, I wish I was a metalhead back when I was 10... Sadly I wasn't :(

Ok, this made my day, so I HAVE to share!!

Gurther proclaimed that today be Edguy shirt day, so this morning I put on my Edguy shirt, and was like hmmm, I have to make sure people can see it! So I wore a button up jacket so I could leave it un-done for people to see my Edguy pride.

I was about to walk across the street, and I hear a "heyy, were you at that show??" And we stopped and chatted for a minute! I said told him yeah, and he said he was there too, but for Kamelot mainly, but really liked Edguy. He also mentioned that he has some of Tobias's solo work, too. We parted when the crosswalk light changed with a "keep listening!"

Really, it is really difficult to find others that listen to good metal out here, so I was wayyyy excited that someone else does, recognized the shirt AND said something :)

This also belongs in the what-made-you-happy-today thread haha

Wow, nice story! :D

It happened to me a few times too, with other bands as well, but it's always cool to have random people calling you out and talking music :)

Oh noes! You have to get one! XD

Is there a shop that sells metal shirts near to your home? :P

Or you could always make a custom one... Or the G2K10 shirt...? :D

On Friday, at school, my colleague told me she was studying the tale of "Baba-Yaga" with her pupils and asked me if I knew the traditional Russian song for it...

:D :lol: :D

I spent the rest of the day head-screaming "Baba Yagaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" like at the end of Edguy's song :P

:lol: That's a good one. And thanks for passing it on to me. I know what my brain will be singing to me for the rest of the day :) .

I was watching some tv show a couple of days ago and one of the cast members mentioned "helicopter" in some context.
I giggled for about a minute. That word cracks me up every time! And in the most inappropriate situations.
I confused the hell out of a friend some time back because she mentioned the word and I burst into laughter :lol: .

Now that's funny... I think after reading your post this is probably going to start happening to me. ;) In fact, I think I'm going to play a little "Rocket Ride" right now! 8)

It happened to me after reading the post :lol: To make it even funnier, it was a guy from Germany saying he wanted to become a helicopter pilot (in the tv news)! And I was like: really!? :lol: I had to laugh

I went to Ireland for a few days earlier this year. When flying back, one of the stewardesses was incredibly hot. I got to my seat and couldn't help but put my iPod in to play Lavatory Love Machine.
Our life is a chamber of tears, fear, and hate.

We were listening to that song in the car, on the way to the gig in Kaufbeuren and when Tobi yelled the word, five people started laughing.

I know perfectly what you mean! At some point last month or so, I was lying in a MRT scanner, so I had to lie perfectly still for quite some time. Don’t worry, nothing’s broken… I volunteered for a neuroscience study (one of my best friends is a neuroscientist, so I readily volunteered that he could scan my brain… hey, he even paid me :P). Anyway, for one of the tests, I had to listen to some random words and simply concentrate on them. And continue lying still, of course. That was all. However, this is much more difficult than you think when one of the words is "Helicopter" and I had real trouble not to burst into violent laughter when I actually wasn’t even supposed to blink or even swallow or move my lips… (breathing is allowed. Best keep it low, though)
