I used my myspace account so rarely I canned it a while back. I find this whole social networking thing a bit pointless to be honest.

A bunch of my RL friends are on MySpace, so I am too. That doesn't mean I have to enjoy it.

Does anyone know of that TV show that played in the late 80s, maybe early 90s, that had a white guy who would draw on a massive piece of paper at the end of the show? I am pretty sure it was a space scene and at the end of the show he would add something small into that drawing, maybe a ship one time, a little building the next.


It might have been on PBS.

Shit, I totally remember that show! I can't remember at all what the name of it was though. He'd draw stuff very simply with simple shapes and things teaching people how to draw IIRC.

Just drawings? Older guy? If so I used to watch that as a kid, it was on PBS just after Bob Ross EARLY saturday mornings.

I didn't realise this guy did Mr Squiggle for 40 years. That's a helluva long run.

Pretty sure it was not Tony Hart. And yeah Kauser, it was just drawings. I was thinking about the show because I have this big canvas going in the corner of my room and I have been adding to it occasionally and it reminded me of that show. I loved that show. And I think you're right about it being on before/after/around Bob Ross. Although, I still watch Bob Ross and have him programmed to record every Saturday morning at 3:00.

Dammit, I must figure out what that show was called.

Bob Ross was great. My friends and I constructed a drinking game based on his show. Every time he anthropomorphizes an object or states what implement he is using, you take a drink.

I find Bob Ross extremely comforting (and slightly erotic, don't ask). Watching him often makes me fall asleep, if I'm alone. It's the sound of the paint brush/palette knife scraping the canvas, I think.
I think I might have some weird crush on him.

Dude he puts me right the fuck to sleep. One time I woke up at like nine in the morning and he was on, so I start watching and immediately fall asleep again. It's great.

Lately every time I read TMCM's name on the forums I think it's "too much coffee princess"

What the hells is up with that?

Well Freud did say people see what they want to see.

Well, then you've obviously failed in Freud's eyes.
