Mortified creator, David Nadelberg works his unique way of interviewing people by using their old notes and pictures from childhood. The interview is so rarely art, apparently it involves listening.

It’s like a snark twofer: In a feature called Underrated/Overrated the two L.A. media darlings are cut down to nothing:
NIC HARCOURT: His Morning Becomes Eclectic has evolved into the most pompous and least-rocking show on the FM airwaves. (With all those mewling singer-songwriters, “Morning Becomes Pathetic” is more apt.) A British accent and claims of championing Alanis Morissette only take you so far.
JUNO: The snarky, rapid-fire quips that pass for “razor sharp wit” amount to little more than an emotionally superficial take on teen pregnancy.

Juno could have been the female Superbad–trenchantly funny and thus too edgy to be seriously considered.
