Cool The Blue Nebula Cantina

Welcome to the Blue Nebula Cantina!

The Blue Nebula Cantina

Sometimes you wanna go...
Where everybody knows your name!


Welcome to the lobby bar of the General Social Chat Forum. Think of this thread as your happy little corner cantina to hang out in and talk about whatever you like at a more leisurely pace than chat. Yes, some people actually prefer to hang out on forums rather than in chat. It’s a place for the regulars—and everyone is welcome to be a regular. No matter what, someone will always respond for you to strike up a conversation with.

That’s the point. We get out what we put into it.

Feel free to post pics (I use tinypic with no problem) of funny stuff, whether it’s your cat’s antics (Bring your kitteh to the Cantina day on Caturday!) or a hilarious meme you just found. Gif posting is looked upon favorably, as is coming in saying hi and striking up convos about anything that you fancy.

So, while you’re cruising other threads in this area open another tab and come hang out here with your friends (and make new ones) here in the cantina.

As for the name…I was reminded of this forum thread type from another site, but that was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…Since I happened to be an OEU Star Wars fan, I chose a name from a fan-fic of mine I never finished.

There are a few rules, however.

1. Use either the @ before someone’s name so you can keep track of your conversations and so can others, or quote the post. Simple.

2. No stealing bar glasses and drifting to other threads.

3. No bringing drinks or food from other threads into the Blue Nebula. Seriously. The Blue Nebula cannot be held liable when your whiskey sour suddenly turns into a Corellian Blue Ale because you wandered in with it in your hand.

4. Any drinks ordered must have ridiculous-sounding names. This is to prevent confusion with actual alcoholic drinks, which we are unfortunately neither zoned nor licensed to sell.

5. References to Hitchhiker’s Guide To the Galaxy earns you double points, as do vague Star Wars, Simpsons, or Family Guy references.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHfd...ature=youtu.be

6. Attempting to use those points in any way is not allowed, mostly because all the drinks and use of the juke box is free (but the rest rooms have a cover charge of $5, payable in only in Krugerands or sapphires, not points). Punishment shall be listening to William Shatner's rendition of Rocket Man.

7. Be respectful (we’re here to build one-another up, not tear each other down) and be mindful that younger readers come in. That means no flashing your lightsaber around or attempting to mind-trick the bar tender, or telling people you have the death sentence in twelve systems.

8. Using “42” as an answer for any question that you don’t know the answer to is not only acceptable, it earns you a free pan-galactic gargle blaster, which you then must drink while reciting the Emperor’s lines in a funny voice.

9. Asking for a refund will only get you the drink or food refunded in pennies and pocket lint. The pocket lint is extra, but you won’t be charged.
That’s it.

For the patrons who prefer visual aids…

The Bar:

The Blue Nebula Cantina

The Patrons:

The Blue Nebula Cantina

The Bouncers/Moderation Staff:

The Blue Nebula Cantina

And the bar tender:

The Blue Nebula Cantina
(Don't worry, he doesn't bite, and he's had his rabies shots)

A brief Q&A session to explain:

Wait, what kind of bar is this??
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLeKvQM8gLU


But I'm just lonely and need a place to hang out!
We're no strangers to love...

Are you even allowed to make this kind of thread?
You know the rules and so do I...

How long are you planning on sticking around?
A full commitment is what I'm thinking of...

You're kind of a smartass, you realize this, yes?
You wouldn't get this from any other guy...

But I thought this was a forum for "feelings?"
I just wanna tell you how I'm feelin'...

You're confusing me!!
Gotta make you understand!

Click here for the rest of the Q&A session...

Enjoy!

And I love the non-alcoholic bar idea. I'll have a Whipplefluff Shuba-Hubba Durglechip with extra Galactic Soyance sauce "Code Blue" please.

Wait...we're out of Galactic Soyance "Code Blue." We have "Code Red," though!

Welcome aboard, "Trillian..." lmao My uncle named his cat Trillian. His other one is named Xuxu (Zoo-zoo) so go figure...

lol Thanks! My vision is basically a place for us to hang out and engage in what amounts to a slow chat. If we make to page 100, the last poster will get to pick the theme for the next incarnation of the Blue Nebula. I'm just very glad the idea behind it came across, so maybe this thread won't just get ignored... :P

I've never watched Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Can you believe that?

Tongue Re: The Blue Nebula Cantina



@TheSadGirl: I don't think she's kidding! Go to Marco's Pizza if you have one near you. You get a pizza and they give you a free movie rental. Really good movie, pretty faithful to the book from what I remember, but there's way more that happens after that. I wish they'd do a sequel.

How is everyone doing tonight?

@LiteraryLark: Triple points it is. No idea what we're going to use 'em for!

For TheSadGirl:

I was introduced to the book ( a real page-turner; loved it!!! Literally laughed out loud many times on the non-stop flight from the East Coast to Texas...) and enjoyed it immensely.

Next, I was delighted to hear outtakes from the Radio presentation of the book, shared with me by my best friend's 2 younger brothers, who had by then practically memorized every line.

The movie was alright, but nothing beats the wry humour of the book---and, of course, the radio presentation, which strove to adhere so closely to the spirit of the work.

Good morning!

Coffee of the day: Monsooned Malabar
Coffee I'm actually drinking because I can't find Monsooned Malabar at any stores: Fresh ground 8 O'Clock coffee.

*goes back to wiping down the bar and sipping coffee*

Hm, if you're out of the Monsooned Malabar, do you have the Coco Zoon Dynafin with a shot of Goomba? Asking for a friend. *wink wink*
