In my last post I offered a brief description of planet Dooda. If you haven't read that yet, then you can read it here. Dooda is a peaceful, harmonious planet. It exists on a higher vibrational plane to the one we experience here on Earth. All of it's creatures are aware of this and they live in a state of humble gratitude and love for all. And so celebrating life is just a way of being for all of Dooda's beautiful creatures. And they all have their individual ways of doing that.
In this blog I am going to focus on Dooda's aquatic party life and on one area of Dooda, around the island of Bamba Rai which is situated off the coast of Dooda's second biggest continent, Dino Basa. This is where Emily lives. The above picture is of Emily. Emily is a party fish. Other than eating, that's pretty much all she does.
Emily is not alone in her love of partying. To be honest, most of the aquatic life that live in her neighbourhood are. The warm clear waters allow for gatherings that go on long into the night and that attract the more full-on elements of aquatic life. And the rocky coastline has many nook and crannies that make idea party spaces. Emily grew up in the Bamba Rai area but many fish travel from far and wide to experience probably the best under water parties on planet Dooda.
Every evening after having her last munch on some tasty roob, a kind of algae that contains everything she needs to dance the night away, she gets ready for the party. Once she’s got that night’s outfit on, she’ll test her light show. She has a laser, protruding from above her eye, with colourful lights that spin around it. A lot of the other fish have similar lighting set ups and they get together to put on the nights light show.
Emily also plays music from her back fins. Her sound is similar to a flugelhorn, yeah, I know, but look it up, it's a great sound. She always does a little warm up, playing a couple of her favourite tunes, before heading out to meet up with friends and shake her tail fin. She loves to play to a funky beat but she also loves jazzy stuff, and ska type music and anything with a fat brassy sound, and she’ll get stuck in.
Everyone gets involved in the parties. Most of the aquatic life on Dooda can generate musical sounds. Crustaceans are particularly good at keeping a beat and many create beautiful bass sounds. Testudines have high pitched voices and love to sing together in a chorus, molluscs tend to be good at percussion and the cephalopods create amazing swirling sounds. There are under water slug like creatures that slither along the sea bed, called Poytings, that glow in multicolours. The colours, sounds and movement created at these parties is a sight to behold.
The parties usually start before sunset and go on for a few hours, except for on full moons. Those parties last at least all night, but can also go on for up to 24 hours. The daily parties are basically free form jam sessions but the full moon parties are much more organised. As Emily has been partying a long time, and is totally committed to the cause, she is one of the main organisers. She knows the coastline so well and she knows everyone and can get the best out of them all. She knows where the best acoustics are for each genre of music and who works well together. She is one of the movers and shakers, but she is not alone as partying is a way of life on Dooda.
If you ever get yourself to planet Dooda, then I would highly recommend checking out Bamba Rai's coastline. They have the technology to turn you into a fish for a couple of days, so, there’s nothing stopping you.
