That's a great book (well, pair of books actually, because there are two volumes) and Paul's a really intelligent, funny guy. I once heard him say that he'd figured out he has more hours of unwatched video in his VHS collection than he has left in his life. That was more than ten years ago. Maybe it was a joke, but I imagine it's still an impressive collection of schlock.

Here's a photo I took of him giving a tour of the old Carnegie Library on Second Street back in 2006. There are a few more photos of the library in that post, which links to even more on my Flickr account.
