MattChrisRyan run this joint.

Movies, music, comics, tv, and other stuff strike us from time to time. We tend to tiptoe off the beaten path. We like it better that way – less foot traffic past our teepee.

Once, future, and current contributors: JonathanJonMattJanPaulEvanJohnDavid. Somehow Jonathan got us a bit of press with the LGBT crowd, for which we thank him.

Oh yeah, we have a podcast! Matt, Ryan, Evan, and John host it, but Matt usually plays host host.

Bands: Send us your music if you want us to consider you for a Crate-Digging column! E-mail us at criticalmassesmedia@gmail.com. Put “Crate-Digging Music” in the subject line. We’ve been getting quite a few submissions, so apologies if we’re taking too long to respond or not responding at all. If we don’t get back to you, don’t take it personally – our writing staff is small and our tastes are pretty streamlined, so we may not run a column on your record based on nothing more than personal preference. But thank you for considering us!
