See You on the Other Side, Monsters HD

This is already the year of all my favorite things being canceled, and it would be more than a little unfair for me to send off EGM and not my most favorite TV station, Monsters HD. I’d link you to the site, but that disappeared at the same time all the Voom networks stations were dropped from my cable service, so you’ll have to live with this tiny, pathetic image.

Sadly, now a false slogan
It’s no exaggeration to say that Monsters HD was an enormous help in my settling into a new city. In the year since I moved to Hoboken, the channel proved time and time again to be my go-to source for entertainment when nothing else would cut it. Sure, just like any cable movie station, Monsters HD had a lot of repeats in its lineup, but the variety represented from week to week was consistently impressive, and the movies all looked really stunning to boot.

Slasher marathons, Hammer films, days of nothing but Dracula; this is the stuff man concocts in dreams. At the very least, I’m glad I took full advantage of the service it offered while I could, but I do genuinely miss it. You hear me? I miss you, Monsters HD! I dedicate this song to you!
