RIP Daniel Kyre
Start writing a post

Cyndago was an on-the-rise online sketch comedy trio of Daniel Kyre, Ryan Magee, and Matt Watson. Daniel and Ryan began making videos in late 2012 in South Carolina, but moved to Los Angeles, and added Matt Watson to the team. Watson was added to pursue more opportunities with Maker Studios, a network that produces videos for channels on YouTube.


Their videos primarily utilized a dark wit, with sudden and unexpected endings to throw off the audience member- and they were great at it. These videos had amassed them a respectable following, initially sparked by collaborations with fellow YouTuber Markiplier, who already had a large following when they first started making videos together.

As of now, they have over two hundred thousand subscribers and over fifteen million views on their videos, including forty sketches and fourteen original songs; an impressive following for such a short amount of time.


Sadly, Daniel Kyre passed away last week, after an apparent suicide attempt. Daniel was rushed to a hospital, and passed peacefully, with family and friends by his side.

Ryan and Matt announced in a message to their fan base about the recent events that the group would not continue without Daniel, and that Cyndago would not be releasing any more videos.

Just as it is said in the post by Cyndago, this is another talking point for mental health. It is a hotly debated issue nowadays, but the bottom line is the same: if you are having suicidal thoughts, please talk to someone.

A friend, a family member, a counselor, a teacher; literally anyone.

There are also options like http://www.suicide.org/index.html or calling 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433).

There are always people who will listen. There is always hope. Please don’t hesitate to ask people for help.


We, as fans of his work or as people just now hearing about him, need to remember this wonderful young man and all he did in his life; how many lives he was able to affect, whether largely or just slightly, with his music and his videos.

The amount of love and support I’ve seen from the fans has been awe inspiring, with people all across social media pouring out support for Daniel’s family, Ryan, Matt, and Mark, and memorializing Daniel.

Cyndago was, at its roots, a comedy channel, so let’s make sure it is not obscured and erased by time because of this sudden and tragic end.

Let’s remember Cyndago how they were: an amazingly funny and inventive channel, with a variety of sketch and music videos, all of which were immensely enjoyable with each repeated viewing.


My thoughts go out to Daniel’s parents and sister, as well as the rest of his family, and his friends, Ryan Magee, Matt Watson, Mark Fischbach, and anyone else that knew him and were affected by him personally.

Rest in peace, Daniel Kyre. You will be dearly missed.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

12586

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
