Get Mortified

The most recent episode of This American Life (which is worth listening to in its entirety) ends with an eight-minute reading by Sascha Rothchild. And by “reading” I mean “really funny, really frightening performance of several pages from her teenage diary.” Sascha originally read the piece at Mortified:

a showcase of people like you sharing their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes… in front of total strangers.

According to their site, a Mortified TV Pilot is in development at Comedy Central. I’d love to see it, especially the Mo Collins bit. Also, be sure to visit their Hall of Lame. The thought of even acknowledging one’s teenage years, let alone airing them in public, is too horrifying to imagine.
