DFW and Patton

Don't you love it when your favorite people are mentioned in a similar vein or -better yet- by one another? Finding out Dave Eggers likes Sufjan Stevens, that David Simon likes Chomsky, that Hume liked Rousseau (for awhile) etc. Well one of my favorite comedians, Patton Oswalt mentioned David Foster Wallace and how DFW changed him with his 2005 commencement speech (which Patton recently read.) Here's the original DFW commencement address (well worth reading) and here are Patton Oswalt's thoughts, along with his own differently awesome commencement speech.
