Black Mirrors and Dark Chocolates

The Buddies squeeze some Buddha’s Hand into S’mike’s take on The New Black cocktail and then explore the inspirations and hidden, disturbing implications of the much-lauded Black Mirror episode “USS Callister.”

Then it’s on to a late-night blind chocolate taste test, which  goes… not so great.

Buddha’s New Black Hand Cocktail:


  • 1/4 ounce absinthe
  • 2 ounces rye whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce Averna Amaro
  • Dash orange or Angostura bitters
  • 2 fingers of a Buddha’s Hand fruit


  • Place absinthe in a chilled old-fashioned glass and swirl to coat glass
  • Combine rye, Averna, bitters, and 1/2 cup ice in a mixing glass or a cocktail shaker
  • Stir until outside of shaker is frosty, about 1 minute
  • Strain into prepared glass
  • Squeeze Buddha’s Hand over drink to release oils and add to glass

Pissed Connections

The Buddies are at it again, and this time no corner of Craigslist is safe!

On a suggestion from S’mike’s wife, BIS tackles the weirdest, creepiest and most desperate Missed Connections they can be handed (because they’re too lazy to find some themselves), and then mock the hell out of ’em.

Didn’t see that coming, DID ya?!

Marvel at the sparkling wit of the Trader Joe’s Passive-Aggressivist! Stand in awe of the creepy office park drone who is crowd-sourcing his stalking! Groan at the ubergeek who fills his post with more references than even the Buddies combined can pick up on!

Also, Mike relays his brief stint as a post-apocalyptic slum lord, S’mike toes the line of being a ruiner and OMG AERITH DIES ALL OVER AGAIN NOOOOOOOOO.

Oh, and Trainwreck gets a favorable review. Even if some penises are made to shrivel…
