I prefer the Bob Ross of knife fighting.

Some people get into one theme with their art. My watercolours, unfortunately, always end up being scenes of WW1 trenching fighting with poison gas clouds and barbed wire or of nuclear bomb blasts.

It's not the same thing at all.

The magic that Bob Ross employed wasn't necessarily his painting (Trivia Side Note: Bob Ross was terribad at painting actual people and never featured any in his paintings. You know who else was better at landscapes than people?), it was a little thing known as ASMR.

Mother Angelica of EWTN used ASMR to keep the audience enthralled in this manner as well.

Fun Fact:  The long points of light that come out of the star are called diffraction spikes, and they're created entirely by the telescope as light diffracts around the struts holding the central reflecting mirror.  The number and position of the spikes depends on the number and position of the struts.  People got so used to seeing pictures of stars taken through reflecting telescopes with these false spikes coming out of them that when astronomers use other designs of telescopes that don't cause diffraction spikes, they often manually add them in before releasing the pictures to the public, because people feel that there's something off about pictures of stars that don't have them.

Bob Ross can not be matched. I love watching him paint, it's just so relaxing.

Was about to post this. Dat tingle! There's nothing like it. I listen to asmr videos (and bob ross) to help me sleep. This video has nothing to do with the magic of Bob Ross.

Other than the asmr, there was 1 thing that made The Joy of Painting magical. Bob would mess up, and you would think "no! Bob you farked up the painting!" and than BOOM, beautiful landscape. There was a valuable lesson there about mistakes and life.

Bob Ross' painting shows exude a level of calming that you cannot find in most prescription medications, much less in other TV shows.  I'm dead serious: watching Bob Ross paint is like taking 2 or 3 muscle relaxants at once.  I've never had any visual medium affect me as much as that man calmly talking about how one should feather their brushstrokes to make proper pine trees.  And I don't even like painting!

If I ever acquire any stoner friends again I'm going to get them all a box set of The Joy of Painting as a Christmas present.  And then never hear from them until next Christmas.

Rumor has it that Bob Ross was a drill sergeant in the Air Force. Hard to imagine him having to go all  R. Lee Ermey on a recruit. I doubt he described any maggot f*ckups in boot camp as "happy accidents".

Dude, you don't even have to be a stoner. I've never been high in my life, but I remember the summer I graduatedand my parents took my siblings camping and left me to my own devices.

Had all my friends over for a bonfire and a movie, so as we turned through the channels to get to HBO and turned on the surround sound, we happened upon PBS and Bob Ross.

Having that man in surround sound did something. Here were six teenage boys getting ready to watch some horrible action film and possibly sneak some dad's liquor, and we were just making fun of it at first. Three hours later, we realized that we completely missed the movie. Two hours after that we realized we needed to turn it off or risk overdose.

We were just transfixed. It's like Hypnotoad was real and took the form of a hippie.

Yep.

''I was 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,'' he said. ''The job requires you to be a mean, tough person. And I was fed up with it. I promised myself that if I ever got away from it, it wasn't going to be that way any more."

It's from this article from 1990. Sorry, no link. Mobile fark doesn't do it so neither do I.

There's a street artist, or there was, in Montreal who would pump out these space-themed paintings. He'd have several spray cans and a lighter and a scraper. One day I brought him a 10" reel and asked him if he could paint it up.

Every Friday at 3 p.m. our local PBS station airs The Joy of Painting.  I watch it every week.  It's 30 minutes of visual Valium, and I love it.  You can't be in a pissy mood when Bob Ross is talking about where to put a big ol' evergreen tree.

Yeah but fragile. Aluminum should be primed if you want the paint to stick properly. I didn't...

Very nice.

I'm only allowed one expensive hobby, and I've already got three, so my astronomy gear is pretty humble. Orion 8" reflector on a SkyView mount (I am going to move up to an Atlas... the SkyView only allows 15-20 second exposures and no computer/autoguider control) and a Canon 7D. I also have a Canon 400mm f/5.6 and 70-200 f/2.8 MkII, but haven't taken any astro shots with them yet.

I would love to be more into astronomy. I got my first telescope when I was 10 and used it all the damn time. These days, though, if I look up, I fall over. Seriously. Something's off with my equilibrium.

Might try to order myself the box set...

ASMR is the stupidest god damn rebranding of age-old meditation, relaxation and hypnosis techniques I've ever heard. I don't know why people decided that the warm feeling you get listening to soothing, calm voices needed a new term, and that the term should be a discombobulated word salad that explains absolutely nothing, but that's what everyone calls it now.

/fun fact: Typing ASMR or MRSA into youtube search brings up two vast communities of videos, both addictive but for opposite reasons.
