Former “BU’s Funniest Student” Liz Arcury curates Rocks at the Bottom, an online lit mag of sorts that celebrates the humor in rock bottom. Right away, the idea is fantastic. Whether for schadenfreude or #relatable humor, people love tales from dire straits. But the site sucks. Flatly. There’s no content or information featured on the main page, the rudimentary header eats up the screen, and the actual work of the mag is slapped on an endlessly scrollable tab at the site’s end. With some reworking, Arcury could have something resonantly humorous on her hands, but not until she gets some IT help first.
