Right now, at 5:00 in the morning, over 44,000 people are watching Bob Ross painting happy little trees, babbling brooks, and fluffy clouds. They'll be watching him from now (actually Thursday) through November 6th in a marathon viewing that celebrates his birthday - and defies explanation. Bob Ross, the soft-spoken PBS painter and instructor, was a 20 year Air Force veteran - a Master Sergeant - and has been dead for over 20 years. Yet 44,000 people are avidly watching him, chatting in the sidebar, and going away from their computers just a little calmer, just a little happier than when they started. Turn on a single Joy of Painting episode, and even if you intend to watch for only a minute, you'll be instantly mesmerized, and stay the whole half hour. That's the Bob Ross phenomenon.
