Some time in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred ninety-nine, I purchased a VHS copy of Bio-Dome. I don’t remember the specifics of where I bought the tape or why I bought the tape. What I do know is this – I watched this movie nearly every school night of my sophomore year of high school. It rubbed off. A lot of my sophomore year behavior was directly informed by that VHS tape. I’m not sure if that is good or bad or what, judge for yourself:
Who am I kidding, it was a great thing! As an adult, I even got to live out a dream:
Pauly Shore poked fun at Nate and me during his standup show. This was the highest possible form of flattery for two Bio-Domers.
In sum: I have spent more time watching Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin pretend to guess dietary choices based on flatulence than I have spent at the Louvre. La dolce vita, I believe they call it.
Runners-up for most watched movie:
- Bring It On
- Fight Club
- A Christmas Story
- Drop Dead Gorgeous
- The Mask
