Funk nite pt. XVII: silent funk

     This week, instead of offering a video, one offers the opportunity for people to contemplate their own funkiness (if any). You can shake your groove thang. Or rock the funky beat. To your own soundtrack, or without sound at all. Keeping it on the One. If you like.

     Funk it up!
