After seeing another internet meme made out of him, I wondered who Bob Ross actually was. I ended up watching some of his painting series, and, good Lord, it's fantastic. I've never been drawn to painting, but after watching him, I legitimately wish I could try it. I mean, just look at this https://www.youtube.com...
SO to Bailey, the love of my life <3

It's funny that the only reason I ever learned who Bob Ross was is because someone made a parody where Bob Ross was drawing Muhammad and his 6 y/o wives.

But his work is impressive, I'll admit. I particularly liked how the yellow flame of the campfire seemed to actually jut out from the page.

Now, b/c I watched that video, I keep getting recommended a bunch of Bob Ross episodes...

When I was a boy in the 80s he was a common sight on the tv.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

He was a skilled painter, inspiring, and certainly entertaining. Soft spoken, just enjoyable all around. There have been several nights where I've comfortably fallen asleep while playing an episode of his in the background, lol.

Wow. I can't draw stick men but I reckon I could give that a go.
I am however going to need a reusable canvas of sorts. Is there such a thing ? . There is going to be alot of starting again.
I'll look into it.
