Alright.... now that I think the car situation is finally resolved, let's have fun flying by the seat of our pants for another impromptu LSWE!!!

As usual, I'll just be copying last year's rules... hopefully catching the few changes that will need to be made...


The basic LSWE rules:

The game will be 5 weeks long, running from Monday January 15th through Friday February 16th, 2018. There's an outside chance I may extend the game should I get a burst of inspiration over the coming weeks, but don't count on that. Games will be posted each weekday, and will officially close when I post the answers the following morning (Monday morning for Friday games). The exception will be the first game, which I will leave open until Wednesday morning since my lack of a solid starting date may catch a few regular players napping.

1 point for each correct title, 1 point for each correct artist.

Don't cheat. Just don't. No outside sources are allowed.

Please post your answers using the "spoiler=" tags! Those are the tags that give you a spoiler that looks like.....

Bonuses:

JJ Cale Points - Arbitrary bonus points awarded by me for arbitrary reasons that tickle my fancy. You can earn up to three, or if you really impress me... you can get a 5 point supermax. Nobody has ever gotten exactly 4 JJC points in a single game before, and they never will so long as I'm alive...

Kroxquo Bonus - Name another song with artist that fits the theme of that day's game (or whatever I ask for), and receive two points (Or whatever I promise). You can NOT reuse an artist that you identified in that game. You CAN reuse theme elements you've identified in the game unless I specifically state otherwise.

Attendance Bonus - Awarded every Monday for the previous week... you get 5 points if you played all 5 games, 3 points for playing 4 games, and 1 point for playing 3 games. You must at least attempt to answer something in a game to receive credit for playing that day (The anti-Present rule). At the end of the LSWE, everyone who played all 25 games will receive a 10 point bonus.

Annie Bonus - You can replace the word "girl" or "girls" in a song title with "squirrel" or "squirrels" (as appropriate, don't get cute) for a bonus point. Girl or girls in a parenthetical part of the title does not count for the Annie Bonus.

The Shithouse Rats Award - The player who cracked me up the most... either with a single post or a cumulative effort throughout the season, will win this prestigious honor and the 10 point bonus that comes with it.

Image Bonus - I'll ask you to find an image from somewhere off the internet that in some way relates to the theme of the game, or whatever I may ask for. You get 5 points for finding an appropriate image, and the poster of the most creative/clever/one I like best image for each game will get an extra 5 point bonus (The illustrious Image Bonus Bonus). Please, have lots of fun with this... it's my favorite LSWE bonus and I love what you guys come up with! And if you need help remembering how to post images, scroll down to where Esto helps out with this towards the bottom of the 2015 rules thread.

Don't forget the Phil Collins Rule... answering the lead singer for a band song is fine if that lead singer had a reasonably well known solo career and actually sang lead on the song in question. Answering the band for a solo singer song will not get you credit at all.

Feel free to bring up any scoring issues with me. I'm not prefect and I make misteaks. All other issues may be addressed and have their cases made known... but my ultimate decisions are final. It's a Bored game for crying out loud!

And last but absolutely never least....

I will see you here bright and early Monday morning...... hopefully ready to kick off the 2018 (10th anniversary, 11th year!!!) LSWE!

Think you'd need an upgrade to be called a rat.
