I feel like this is a reference to something, but I have no clue as to what. Any ideas?

It's one of the catch-phrases of one Thomas Anderson.

I just tried to google Thomas Anderson, but most of the results were for Paul Thomas Anderson, a movie director. Assuming this is not the same guy, where can I find more information?

i found it an amusing reference; completely forgot it was from the Matrix. It was an old event title on Massive Damage's Please Stay Calm so that came to mind first.
Did I ever order the blue paint?

Googling "Thomas Anderson there is no spoon" gets me a page full of hits.

I didn't think to do that at the time. Hopefully, I'm now better prepared for the next stupid-sounding question I have. :D
