Bob Ross, Bear Blend and Pink Floyd: A Synchronistic Pairing of Art Bliss

by Oct 15, 2021Smoke Signals0 comments

Life sucks sometimes. Capitalism can kill your mojo like the last few lines of a Tarantino movie script. Screaming babies. Shaved women collaborators. The IRS levies your paycheck like a junior high Zeppelin cover band and hurtsyour freaking soul. 

We’ve all been there — when the whole week’s stuck on a Bee Gees record skipping the same high note. 

That’s when you need some Bob Ross, sound down, Pink Floyd up. 

Trust me. Bob Ross will pick you apart, stitch you back together, teach you to see through all those happy fluffy little clouds of the space time continium.

Feeling stressed? Do yourself a favor. Break out the Joy of Painting episodes on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime. Turn the sound down and set the subtitles to stun. 

Put on Pink Floyd’s Echoes, vinyl preferred.  Roll up some Bear Blend, cannabis, or a mixture of both. Settle in for some live painting, cute little poet squirrels, and spontaneous art jazz.

It’s live concert art that just might soothe your soul.

The Dark Side of the Bob Ross Rainbow

Did you know — Pink Floyd and Bob Ross with the sound down is a little like a Dark Side of the Rainbow — pairing Dark Side of the Moon to The Wizard of Oz.  Spontaneous synchronicity blends together in eerie cosmic coincidences you don’t expect.

It’s cosmic, third eye opening — the best way to grow an Afro halo of enlightenment like the golden nimbus Jesus and the Virgin Mary wear in Medieval paintings

(Fact is that Afro saved Bob Ross from an Air Force drill sergeant death. Just try to imagine him, full ‘fro, stand in for the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket: “Pyle, you had best square your ass away and start shitting me happy little trees or I will definitely fuck you up!”)

Bob Ross Bebop Jazz

Watching Bob Ross is witnessing spontaneous art, like bebop jazz forming, breathing, bending across a palate. Behold a bare feeling conceive, gestate, and form itself out of thin air. What’s barely a blond bubble becomes a windy seascape, free formed from nothing, like a lucid dream shaped from the bulgy blur of sleep.

And then suddenly Bob Ross paints a solid black line down the middle of your bliss and you think, “Oh God, you messed it up.” 

But with a rhythmic dance of a fan brush, the shade becomes a tree out of nowhere, gorgeously happy, bending your mind to accept the unanticipated.

Bebop Bob Ross jazz is a beautiful thing, a doorway to enlightenment, like Buddha on a mountaintop wondering how the sound of one hand clapping is really just the beginning of a circle that holds all possibility.

The Secret to Happy Tree Love Making

Remember, sound down, Pink Floyd up. The whole time, Bob Ross will gently bend your ear in the subtitles. You can hear his soft meditative voice in your mind as you read Bob Ross poetry like the subtitles to an old Italian movie. 

“There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.” If a tree falls in a forest of Bob Ross, does it ever hit the ground?

“The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.” Believe in Bob Ross — he will believe in you.

“Make love to the canvas.” And Bob Ross will make love to the inner spirit deep inside you with the full cosmic bow of his Afro.

Bob Ross poetry sets your mind to bliss.

Setting a Psychedelic Soundtrack

Bob Ross’ spontaneous free form jazz art blends well with a variety of music, especially anything psychedelically conscious, where there’s a mind bending journey from the outer reaches of a record to the center. Pink Floyd works well. As does Wilco’s A Ghost is Born, anything Radiohead, maybe even a little Coltrane or some Beethoven’s 9th if you’re old school.

Try your own pairing.

The point is to sail, to journey, to boldly go where your mind’s never been before, like your ears are the Starship Enterprise.

Roll up some Bear Blend and meditatively smoke.  Mix in some cannabis if you want to untether the gravitational pull. Blend into the smoke, sail the music, transcend the Dark Sienna, the Prussian Blue, the Phthalo Green — all the colors of the Bob Ross rainbow. 

Free your mind in all the happy little trees. The secret to doing is believing. Let Bob Ross believe in you. 

Bear Blend believes in Bob Ross — the secret bliss of happiness.  Do you?
