I thought it was great until I saw Bruce Campbell on there. Then it became brilliant.

Weak, only because you can't have PTOF without George Clinton and Bootsie Collins!

Cool link, my fellow funkateer, only that 40 of Colt 45 shoulda been OE, the malt liquor of the gods.

I don't mean to complain about the best post today but the 'return to main menu' doesn't work on many of the pages.

That was about the whitest thing I've seen since watching Mark Madsen dancing. Princess Leia? Saturday morning cartoons? Please. Where's George 'Motherfunking' Clinton, Stevie Wonder, and Sly Stone? Now, this is funk.

how can a periodic table of funk be complete without George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Maceo Parker, Sly Stone or Stevie Wonder?

(shout out to euphorb and tj for understanding what funk is. groove it on the one!)

Yup, the absence of all things Parliament removes all credibility.

Still, there was the immortal line: "Every actor should be judged strictly by the quality of his possessed hand scene. "

Having watching Prince play for seven hours last week accompanied by, among others, George Clinton, Maceo Parker, Larry Graham, ?uestlove and some slightly unfunky people like Alicia Keys and Doug E. Fresh, I can say with certainty: This ain't funky enough.
