    OMG! I have some “mortified” stories as well. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win tickets to see this. Plus, I am a big supporter of mr. Sam Adams. :) WHOO HOOO!!

    I would love to win tickets because I have yet to make it to one of these shows, which clearly makes me a huge loser.

    Saw Mortified PDX during the summer in NW and loved it! Such a great idea! Would love to see it again.

    Are you kidding? Hearing Sam Adams tell mortifying stories from his youth?? That sounds too good to be true! (Please pick me!) :)

  5. Mo September 30, 2010 at 4:06 pm #

    Trying to build up the courage to actually submit to Mortified. If the Mayor can do it…

    Mortified: Proof that living vicariously is much better than doing it yourself.

  7. Katherina September 30, 2010 at 4:08 pm #

    I am a great audience member because I clap, cheer and boo loudly and on command. I love love love Sam Adams and am so proud to have him as our mayor. and I have always wanted to go to a Mortified show.

  8. Pat September 30, 2010 at 4:27 pm #

    Mortified is amazing… I’ve read the book but never seen it live! Super hilarious

  9. Maggie September 30, 2010 at 4:33 pm #

    Oh, god, I have been following Mortified for years now, and coveted being able to go to the shows before I turned 21. Now that I am almost 23, I still have yet to make it to a show – terrible. If I could go next week, I don’t think I would ever be happier, especially since I’d be able to take one of my roommates along!

  10. Blake September 30, 2010 at 4:57 pm #

    I’d love this event!

  11. Spencer September 30, 2010 at 5:19 pm #

    The only thing missing about this posting is the fact that it is the Opening Night Event for the Wordstock Book Festival. It’s going to be a great opening event.

  12. Berenice September 30, 2010 at 5:25 pm #

    I listen to all types of storytelling radio shows and podcasts religiously. I need to hear other people’s stories to encourage myself to get up the gumption to tell my own horrifyingly embarrassing tale. Help!

  13. Barbara C September 30, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    Oh please please please. I neeeeed to go to this. Hearing others mortifying experiences might possible make me believe that mine pale in comparison. True Joy.

  14. heather September 30, 2010 at 6:08 pm #

    OooOoooOOo! This is the Wordstock Mortified! I can’t wait. Sign me up to win free tickets, please!!!

  15. Nikki September 30, 2010 at 7:04 pm #

    I am dying to see MORTIFIED! I have always wanted to see this so please please pretty please give me tickets!

  16. James September 30, 2010 at 7:14 pm #


    I just learned what this is and realize I have so much to offer. After months of cleaning out boxes of mementos to get ready for a move, I’ve discovered plenty from my past that just MORTIFIES ME!

  17. Stacey September 30, 2010 at 8:08 pm #

    I would love to see Mortified and share in that uncomfortable feeling! Just the thought of it is inspiring me to find my junior high Hello Kitty diary…

  18. Corey September 30, 2010 at 8:15 pm #

    I want to take comforte in the fact that their are other people out their that were bigger freakshows then myself

  19. Lia September 30, 2010 at 9:28 pm #

    Mortified sounds like a great, voyeuristic event that proves we’re all not as strange as we think. I would love to attend! :)

  20. Meg September 30, 2010 at 11:06 pm #

    Dear Diary,
    Wouldn’t it be, like, so awesome if I won those free tickets to Mortified? Who should I invite to share in my good luckiness? (I don’t even think that is a word, but Dear Diary, you never criticize my creative wordfulness.) Maybe The Cute One from chemistry? Or should I be true to my best friend and treat her to a fun night out? On the other hand, would she pick me or that McHottie she is lusting after? That witch would probably throw me over for the first boy who even looks twice at her! That does it – her backstabbing me like that is the final straw that broke this camel’s back. I’m not even telling her that I won. I mean fuhgettabout her, right?

  21. Shely October 1, 2010 at 12:49 am #

    I love this concept! I am mortified just thinking about it (in a good way).

  22. Cassandra October 1, 2010 at 3:49 am #

    Mortified+Wordstock. I have no words. Pick me pick me pick me please please please.

  23. Dee October 1, 2010 at 5:16 am #

    Please pick me! I want to go to see Sam Adams mortified.

  24. Sandy McCollum October 1, 2010 at 8:44 am #

    I’ve never won tickets yet, I’m pretty sure it’s my turn! I’m a big Sam Adams fan and I’d love to see this show!

    Once I crawled under a house to follow the “big kids” in one of their adventures. Everyone made it out except me. I was stuck under there for three hours because I couldn’t find the entrance in the dark. Instead of getting upset I made a fort and a figurine out of dirt and metal (that somehow was under the house).
    Finally, I was able to hear my Mom calling my name hysterically. I said I’m here! She was confused as I was not in the bathroom where the little voice was coming from. I eventually was found covered in dirt and carrying my metal figurine.
    I still have that figurine packed in a box, under the house.

    That was a great story and all, but I think I heard something about tickets?

    I started journaling at 14, while at summer camp. I did it religiously until age 25. I still have those journals and very rarely will pull them out.

    Listening to the mortified podcast is like reading the shit I wrote years ago, and laughing at it.

  27. free October 2, 2010 at 6:36 pm #

    ooooooo-pick me! i’ve heard great things about mortified and this sam adams character.

  28. Sara October 2, 2010 at 7:58 pm #

    I love Wordstock, and I’ve been meaning to check out a live Mortified show for quite a while now… plus Sam Adams is an intriguing guy. Also, it’s on my birthday’s eve. So hook this Libra up, please!

    I remember going to a poet competition in salt lake one time…. random people were picked from the audience to rate the poets, in the poetry slam… Every single person had such, dark, deep, humorous and inspirational slams that I met up with them after for their own poetry meet ups and this quaint coffee shop. I read a few pieces myself… It was another world to speak your words, emphasizing characteristics, voice and movement to represent the ideal.

    The was almost a year ago, I would love to see what Portland has to offer, and meeting/seeing mayor Sam Adams! Double whammy! Getting some face time with local politicians would be sweeeeeet!

  30. Kate October 4, 2010 at 9:08 am #

    Every Mortified event I’ve been to has been fantastic and I would love, love to hear Sam Adams tell his stories!

  31. Alex October 4, 2010 at 9:36 am #

    Wait, does the mayor also get to be mortified? Schadenfreudelicious

  32. Chris Freeman October 4, 2010 at 12:09 pm #

    Oh Mortified is great! Perhaps if I won some tickets I could find a lady to go with me and then I wouldn’t have to go home and write sappy, lonely stories in my dear diary… which I am too old to be doing. If only I had some tickets…

    Always up for a Slam Session — and this one has the formula for fun!!
