For years, Brother Octopus would sink deep below the depths of the ocean tides. Far beyond where any sea creature would even dare to imagine, he called this place home. Aside from exploring the remains of ancient history left at the bottom of the black abyss, Brother Octopus also finds comfort in writing music.
Using his eight tentacles to his advantage, Brother Octopus had learned how to play guitar, piano, accordion, among many other instruments simultaneously. His music was heard throughout the ocean waters bringing in many visitors such as dolphins, electric eels, and even sharks, just like a scene straight from ‘The Little Mermaid’. It wasn’t long after until Brother Octopus realized that he was bigger than the ocean, he was ready for the world!
He delivered his goodbyes and swam to the surface where he could hear a perfectly played tambourine from a distance. Brother Octopus found himself walking towards this wonderful sound and stumbled upon a highly secured building. Quickly, he put his back to the wall and just as a security guard was walking around the corner, Brother Octopus managed to knock him out and disguise himself as a guard. Without question, he continued his way towards that lovely tambourine rhythm and finally reached a lady wearing a prison outfit with a tambourine in her hand.
Brother Octopus whispers “Hey, I could get you out of here” as the lady frantically stares beyond the bars and notices an oddly shaped man with tentacles for arms, “Who are you?” she inquires. Brother Octopus replies “Just call me Brother Octopus, I’m a musician and I need a rhythm section, interested?”. Without a moment to think about it, the lady answers “YES”.
MEET LADY FRIEND
As a child, Lady Friend never had a bad bone in her body. She would have tea dates with her plush animals and customize her pink beautiful dollhouse. She was living every 6 year old girls dream and loving every minute of it, not knowing that her life was about to change forever…
Several years had passed and Lady Friend was as cheerful as ‘Barney The Dinosaur’ himself. She was laying on the couch, watching her favorite show ‘Blossom’. A disturbing knock on the door forced her to leave the luxury of the sofa and respond. Lady Friend opened the door and before she could even say “hello”, two men in FBI uniforms grabbed her and took her straight to jail without trial.
Confused and distraught, Lady Friend shouts to the officers “what’s going on? why am I here?”. The officers held up the remains of a used candy wrapper and replied “Does THIS answer your question?”. Lady Friend recollects stealing a candy bar from a convenience store many years ago and slowly nods her head. “You’re going to be here for a very long time” the officer concludes.
Days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months and months turn into years. All the while, Lady Friend has been practicing her favorite instrument, the ‘tambourine’. She’s become quite familiar with the instrument and can keep a beat better than a drum machine.
One day, while playing her tambourine within the confined space of her cell, she hears a calming voice whisper “Hey, I could get you out of here”. Lady Friend frantically stares beyond the bars and notices an oddly shaped man with tentacles for arms, “Who are you?” she inquires. The tentacle man replies “Just call me Brother Octopus, I’m a musician and I need a rhythm section, interested?”. Without a moment to think about it, Lady Friend answers “YES”.
