I'm glad it isn't Bob Ross screaming live. I'm afraid to think of what would make him angry.

I really need to get hour long Bob Ross show recordings into the mp3 format, then play it on planes, before bed, etc. It'd make the ultimate soundtrack for relaxing and having a nap.

Female-voiced version, but with massages.

I swear this genre would make a good late night show.

Oh. I thought "streaming live" meant that it would feature the Zombie Bob Ross. Oh well.

My dream is to have a dark bar where TVs play Bob Ross or Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

And there are LEGO tables.

Let's just do a quick happy little sky here.

The thalo green is very strong. Be careful with it. It'll eat up your whole world.

Let's wash our ol' brush off.
As you know, we wash our brush with odorless paint thinner. And just beat the devil out of it.

Now. The first decision we're going to have to make here is, "Where is our mountains gonna live?"

"Sorry, the maximum number of viewers for this channel has been reached."

So the "We can have anything we want in our world!" is a lie?

From Wikipedia:

Having held military positions that required him to be, in his own words, "mean" and "tough," "the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work," Ross decided that if he ever moved on from the military, "it wasn't going to be that way any more," and "vowing never to scream again."

I should have guessed Bob Ross is ex-military. He's got a built-in helmet!

A few years ago, I'm relaxing on a friend's couch. It's the day after a wedding and we're feeling a bit rough, and Bob Ross is giving his special kind of comforting narration. He starts talking about how not being totally happy with your painting can be good by increasing your motivation to do better. Then he turns to the camera and says, "in fact, I hope you are plagued with dissatisfaction for the rest of your life." Then he goes back to his fluffy clouds and happy trees. It was an intensely surreal moment, having Bob Ross wish perpetual unhappiness on me, and I had to check with my friend that I hadn't just hallucinated. I'm still not sure.

Oh- I guess it really happened.

Awesome FPP title.

Full quote: "One of the greatest things about humans is that they are never satisfied, I hope you realize that and i hope you are plagued with dissatisfaction the rest of your life because you will always strive for more." -Bob Ross

I hope you are plagued with dissatisfaction the rest of your life

So far, so good.

I am plagued with dissatisfaction, but it's a nice, happy little dissatisfaction.

"We don't make mistakes; we just have happy accidents."

Hooray, I watch Bob Ross every Wednesday afternoon (right before the equally trance-inducing Sit and Be Fit) or tape it for later relaxification.

Bob Ross was great, but his predecessor was no slouch as an entertainer either.

To follow up on digrus, here is Patton Oswalt riffing on misters Ross and Alexander.

Still too many viewers...but I can wait. I've missed Bob. Has anyone but me ever tried painting along? It's a little like "paint by numbers by zen". Very relaxing. Sort of a brain defrag. A gentle, happy, tree filled, brain defrag.

Between Ross and the massage lady, I'll never have insomnia again.

Ross love.

"We don't make mistakes; we just have happy accidents."

Try telling that to clients. Their reaction is priceless.
