Statement of Purpose

May 28, 2011

“I don’t give a shit where the stuff I love comes from! I just love the stuff I love!” an exasperated Patton Oswalt says to George Lucas in 1994, when the comedian and filmmaker met each other via time-machine to discuss plans for the Star Wars prequel-ology. Patton’s initial point is “Who cares where it came from as long as it’s awesome?” But that second italicized line is where this blog takes its name. “I just love the stuff I love” is Patton Oswalt’s “I Want to go to there!” A quasi-nonsensical utterance meant to convey “That! That right there! That’s what I enjoy.” And that’s pretty much the goal of this blog. A place to gush about stuff I like. Because glowing reviews are so much more fun to write than bad ones.

BTW, for those interested, that Patton Oswalt bit is from this track on one of the funniest stand-up albums ever recorded, Werewolves & Lollipops. You should probably just buy it!
