    Y'know, once you start watching a Bob Ross episode on YouTube, you're like, "Oh, I'll just watch this for a minute or two" then you end up watching the whole hour long special because YOU JUST CAN'T STOP WATCHING HIM. THIS SHOW IS ADDICTIVE!

    Well, the story goes that Bob Ross was a sergeant in the US Air Force during the 1960s. After barking at his men for years, Ross decided that if he ever left the military he would never raise his voice again. Hence, the famous whispery voice that we've come to know and love!

    Bob can put you into a trance at the drop of a dime.
    The one thing that always got me, he'd spend a good deal of time making all the happy little clouds, reflections of the lake, foggy mountains in the background, , looks so peaceful.
    Then dip his biggest brush in the Van Dyke brown and say "Let's put a big ol' tree right here!" SPLAT!

    Him, Jim Henson, Mr. Rogers. Three pillars of my childhood (although Bob came much later) who never raised their voice. My dad could've taken a page out of their books. 8)

    I slept like a baby last night after watching a few episodes of The Joy of Painting on YouTube. Bob Ross' calm voice and beautiful paintings are very soothing.

    On a side note, I just love it whenever Bob smiles and chuckles after beatin' the devil out of his brush. :laugh:

    At some point, I'd love to see a video of every time he says "beat the devil out of it."

    My little brother does the same thing some nights when he has trouble sleeping! He just turns on Bob Ross or Mr. Rogers and he's out like a light. :flirt:
