Top 5 Hamburger Moments in Video Games


This is a very odd idea for a countdown, but one I have wanted to do for no other reason then a love of burgers and games. It is hard to really give "rules" for this list other then it has to be in a video game and something needs to have happened where a hamburger was an important factor. Why top 5? Simply because, that is all I could find in my experience. So, click "read more" and let us see what there is.

Green Phoenix - Clear and Present Danger Delayed until January 29th...WTF America!

 Hey everyone!

So this is a quick little update to let you all know that I will be delaying my review of the Tom Clancy film Clear and Present Danger until the 29th of January. Instead, next week I will be releasing my review of Disney/Pixar's Soul and the week after that, I will review The History of Swear Words from Netflix.

My reason for doing so is actually quite simple. It's all because of what happened yesterday. Yesterday, the US Capitol building was invaded by a band of domestic terrorists at the behest of President Trump. For the first time since 1814, the US Capitol fell, even if only for a few hours.

What happened yesterday was nothing short of an attempted coup and will represent in my mind a watershed moment for the coming decade. It is in this mindset that I believe a review of Clear and Present Danger must be completely overhauled to fit with a new and essential perspective. Tom Clancy's Clear and Present Danger is at its heart a story about moral defiance of unlawful governance. About a good man standing up against a corrupt American president and his lackeys. It is a story that somehow rings strangely contemporary given our current climate, and I think we need to really examine that.

But to do so will take time and I need to really give it some serious thought. Thus the delay until the 29th, at least by then the tyranny of Trump will be over in the de facto sense, even if it is far from over in the de jure sense.

I hope you all stay safe out there and hope that the lights and fires of change are soon on the horizon.

Green Phoenix - 2020 in Review


And good riddance to hot garbage, I say. This year was a trying time for all of us and it is my sincere hope that my articles might have done something to provide entertainment or education for my readership.

As we enter 2021 with, hopefully, brighter expectations than 2020, I would like to take a quick analytical look-back on 2020 in terms of my articles and viewership. Though this year was far from ordinary, perhaps there remains things that I can improve upon and aid in making 2021 a better year than the shit-show we were given in 2020.
