I was on twitch on my phone last night before bed looking for a stream to watch before falling asleep, and I came across the "Creative" mark and it was second on Twitch. I hadn't really paid attention to it before, and low and behold, 58,000 people watching none other than my favorite happy tree dude, Bob Ross.
Bob Ross was in the Airforce before retiring after 20 years to become an oil painter. The show didn't produce a lot of cash but he loved doing it, so he saved money my getting his hair permed! YES! BOB ROSS ROCKS.
If you have never watched the joy of painting you are missing out on the joy of life. Bob Ross is to painting what Andy Kaufman is to comedy. PURE... UNADULTERATED, GENIUS.
If you have never watched Bob Ross, it is time for you to do so. And this thread is about Bob Ross. His happy clouds, his happy little trees, happy bushes.... This guy passed way too soon.
SO FOR THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, EVERYONE READING THIS THREAD PUT UP YOUR GLASS TO BOB ROSS.

Creative is actually a really good twitch group.
Sup, Monica. Don't forget to register at re rerolled
I too love Bob Ross. I remember watching his show at school growing up. Then a couple of years ago I discovered my parents were really into The Joy of Painting and DVR'd all his happy tree's.
This stream is amazing and the guy at twitch who thought of it should get a fucking raise.
Happy trees even as a kid I could watch this show, was so relaxing.

This is one of a few auto tune songs PBS put together. They all make me happy.

Along with how soft spoken he is, I think the tapping of the two inch brush on the canvas is what puts me to sleep.
I loved this as a kid. I would come home from school and there would be two episodes to watch everyday. I always felt ripped off when his son did an episode though.
Twitch chat is amazing for this. T R E E B O Y S
That Bob Ross twitch channel is the perfect background stream to throw on and just leave running. It's like he oozes a natural sedative that calms you right down.
...and a little happy cloud over here...and a happy tree living over there...best late night stream by far
I think its hilarious that now his paintings that you could "call after the show to donate...whatever...for todays painting!" are worth buckets! I am glad those who most likely supported the show back then for the love of is, can now make a nice little sum...if they want to give up their painting :-)
I have fond memories of watching this show.
When I knew bob he was a hardcore military man and I remember once he told me that once he retired from the Air Force he would never raise his voice again.
Last episode is in an hour and a half. I'll miss you Bob.
They just need to cycle this marathon for all of infinity.
Been on in the background for the past week. He makes it look so easy to paint these up in 20-30 minuites. gg bob
Nice. Twitch is going to keep Bob Ross online! They will hold weekly 6hr mini marathons. Well done.
After Pulling In 5.6M Viewers, Twitch Is Keeping Bob Ross On The Air | TechCrunchTwitch has decided to capitalize on this interest further, and has decided to keep Ross around by streaming a season of “The Joy of Painting” every Monday, starting today.
From 3 PM PST to 9:30 PM PST, Twitch will run one season of “The Joy of Painting.” Because there are 31 seasons, there won’t be repeats until seven months pass by. Twitch will also celebrate Bob Ross’ birthday by running an all-episodes marathon yearly on October 29th.
What Happened to Bob Ross Paintings? | Mental Floss
The first copy always hid off screen, and Ross referred to it while the cameras rolled (none of his on-air paintings were spontaneous). Ross painted a third copy when filming finished. This time, an assistant would stand behind him and snap photos of each brushstroke. These pictures went into Ross’ “How to” books..
