    I think it'd actually be better as an annual thing? That'd make it a bit more special and get people more excited to see it again, rather than just waiting three days or even having it on loop 24/7

    But I don't really know what they'll do!

    So I've been out all day but left the marathon running, I just got home and saw the stay tuned message.

    the only way this could be creepier is if they were playing a numbers station in the background.

    The camera starts to pull back, as I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire softly drifts in from the background.

    The Joy of Painting stream will return every Monday

    One full season all day each Monday, no repeats necessary for seven months

    The marathon will return each year on Bob Ross' birthday, October 29th

    The big thing this marathon imparted to me

    Okay, so I had seen episodes of Joy of Painting here and there as a kid, as you do, but had never really paid attention to it because also I was a kid.

    Bob Ross comes across as an incredibly sincere dude, and he really does get everything across so well that it feels like I could probably go out and get some paints and a canvas, and not make a total fucking mess of it. He actually really does make you believe that anybody can paint.

    I wish I had watched more of it when I was younger, because it is a legitimately great program, and I never realized it back then.

    I was worried about a 24/7 stream making this thing less special, but I didn't want it to go away entirely

    one day a week seems like a nice middle ground

    I have this naively optimistic hope that maybe this will encourage some gentleness in the hooligans who watch twitch streams. I also wonder if maybe the internet isn't a perfect medium for programs like The Joy of Painting, and I kinda hope that we'll start seeing more people do things like, say, a stream dedicated to woodworking, or pottery. I dunno. The internet is such a powerful tool for bringing people together, especially hobbyists, and Lord knows the kids today could use more hobbies. I think, anyway.

    I saw someone on twitter suggest that the success of the bob ross stream shows that maybe people on the internet have a real desire for unashamedly positive content

    I hope more things like this continue to happen

    That's one of the reasons I love(d) Homestar Runner back in the day. It wasn't mean, it wasn't gross, it was just fun.

    No, Tuesday is the worst.

    You're no longer fresh off the weekend while still not even being halfway through the week.

    5. He Didn't Love the Fro

    It's hard to think of Bob Ross and not immediately key in on the giant bushy mushroom cloud of hair that exploded off of his head, and Ross knew it. Unfortunately, he also supposedly hated the haircut. Ross had an uncanny knack for marketing, though, so he knew that trimming his locks down to a more conservative "˜do would probably undercut part of his business. Ross decided to stick with his trademark look and even had his permed visage emblazoned on every tube of Bob Ross Inc. art supplies.


    Ross could bang out an entire 13-episode season of The Joy of Painting in just over two days, which freed him up to get back to teaching lessons.

    http://mentalfloss.com/article/31206/what-happened-bob-ross-paintings

    So apparently he created in the neighborhood of 30,000 paintings. Was a drill instructor for TWENTY years. holy fuck, Bob Ross and Fred Rogers are my gods.
