mortified is " a comic excavation of teen angst artifacts (journals, poems, letters, lyrics, home movies, schoolwork) as shared by their original authors... "
a.k.a., people giving readings from their childhood diaries. on stage.
there are other small groups sprouting up everywhere doing the same thing, which i totally am all for (what a great therapy session), but mortified is by far the most organized and widely known group doing it. they have started doing a touring show thats hitting sf, la, boston, chicago and nyc. cant wait.

heres a great animation of one example- "i hate drake"

theres a few more short clips on their site as well as alot more info on the group here- www.getmortified.com
