    Default Joe Walsh Music Video Survivor Game

    Time for the Joe Walsh Music Video Survivor, where we vote off Joe's solo music videos until we get to the last one standing!

    If you're new, for a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list all Joe’s solo music videos here. Vote for the video that you feel should be eliminated from the list. The video that gets the most votes will be taken off of the list (or, in the language of Survivor, "voted off of the island.") Each round, one more video will get axed, until there's only one left. Remember: you're voting for the one you think should GO, not the one you think should stay.

    Note: Do not criticize how/why other people vote. Their reasons are their own and they are free to vote however they like. Also, never attack a fellow poster. You can disagree without making it personal. Sometimes these games can get heated, but remember... it's still just a game.

    Each round will last 48 hours after posting to give people a chance to vote who don't post every day. That means that the first round will end at 8:00 Eastern time the day after tomorrow. If you miss a round, don't think you can't play. It's all good!

    Since there may be discussion posts, be sure to make it clear when you are casting your vote. Once the board clock strikes 8:00 pm Eastern on the second day, no more votes will be counted for that round - even if it's only seconds after. Your votes also cannot be changed once you have voted, even if you change your mind or make a mistake. Once it's on the record, that's it - so be careful!

    If you get confused about what round we are in, look at this post. I'll always update it to reflect the current round. Also feel free to post any questions if you don't understand what's going on.

    If there is a tiebreaker, then ALL votes from ALL previous rounds are tallied and whoever has the most prior votes is eliminated. That’s the way it’s done on the real show, that’s the way it’s done here. If there is a complete tie with prior votes (Murphy’s Law), then I'll have a sudden-death trivia question ready. The tie-breaker question will be asked one hour after results are in, if there is need for it. The first person who answers it correctly gets to break the tie. The odds of that happening are slim, but you never know, and it's good to be prepared. The exception is the last round. If the tiebreaker does not resolve the last round, then the tie will be allowed to stand.

    In order to avoid voter fraud and trolling, we require that you must be "a member in good standing" as defined by the Terms of Service for at least two weeks before the start of the game in order to cast a vote.

    GAME OVER!

    The winner of the Joe Walsh Music Video Survivor is ...

    Thank you so much for taking care of this, dreamer!

    I cast my vote for One Day at a Time.

    It doesn't feel like a real video to me.

    No problem, Soda.

    And as far as the One Day at a Time video, I don't think it's Joe's best video by far, but it does have some entertainment value for me. I guess the "storyline" is the footage of watching Joe function as a sober ordinary average rock star 'one day at a time'. For me, the moral of the story is you can be clean and sober and still enjoy the life of being a rock star.

    In any event, it sure entertains me more than The Radio Song video. This one has the least going for it, IMHO. Sorry, but watching Joe blandly being moved on a conveyer belt does not rock my world.

    However, as is my usual custom in these games, I am going to withhold my vote for now to see how this round plays out.

    Ordinary Average Guy. The clothesman animation showed a bit of flair but overall it was unimaginative and a missed opportunity. They could have done a much better shop of showing Joe being ordinary in an extraordinary way. Or extraordinary in an ordinary way.

    I have to agree with Soda on this one. As much as I like One Day At A Time, and how great Joe looks in it, it's not really a video. He could have done so much more with that song!

    And I have to say Joe is a hoot in most of these. What a wild and crazy guy! I haven't seen them for a long time! I haven't been able to get The Radio Song one to work past Wolfman Jack, but at least it seems to be a real video.

    I vote for One Day At A Time.
