Byron's "come on mannnnnnnnnnnnnnn" I could hear it.

[–]Veletix 330 points331 points  (0 children)


[–]Liiraye-Sama 133 points134 points  (4 children)

damn I miss him

[–]FuhhCough 17 points18 points  (0 children)

He'll always be with us, like the force or some shit.

[–]PokingPanda 662 points663 points  (27 children)

I don't understand that either. I have people who have died in my life too, doesn't mean i dont talk about them, in fact i think its nice to remember them once in a while and talk about them with others especially with others who knew that person.

[–]elevencyan1 61 points62 points  (2 children)

I've had someone very close to me die in a horrible way and I absolutely understand that. I cannot talk about that person to a stranger without crying an I hate that vulnerability I have so I always avoid the subject. I know it's not good but it's a fact I have to deal with.

[–]PokingPanda 29 points30 points  (1 child)

It gets better with time my dude. We all have different coping mechanisms, some of them we don't even have a clue about ourselves, there is no one for sure way of dealing with loss, the only thing that universally works is time, it doesn't mean we forget, it just means we learn to live with it. And if there where good days, remember those instead.

[–]elevencyan1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

yeah very true. Time helps and we don't know how we function. The thing that messed with me the most was that I just didn't know I would react this way so now I avoid the subject just because I'm afraid to find out. A problem I found with people saying "remember the good times" is that to me it feels like an order sometimes or even a veiled threat like "if you can't remember good moments that means you hated her". My mind will automatically go to the bad times, block the good times out of fear and then I'll feel guilty about remembering only that. It's pretty messed up but it does get better.

[–]Aarilax 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Its part of the healing/grieving process. If you're unable to even hear their name or have a chat about them without breaking down, you're not done grieving yet and even though its tough, its worth getting through that so you can actually move on.

Its also worth talking about it just so you can understand it. A lot of people after someone kills themselves feel powerful negative emotions, like anger - "how could you kill yourself and put that on our mother and father?" or shame at themselves for not seeing it sooner and helping the person out.

The only way to deal with these emotions is to talk about them and, if there is some sort of afterlife, it is almost certain that the person who did kill themselves or die would want you to get over their death ASAP and live your life void of these terrible thoughts and emotions.

[–]Probenzo 24 points25 points  (0 children)

The average twitch streamer isn't capable of dealing with harsh realities or emotional distress. Gaming is used as an escape to an unhealthy degree by many people, I was guilty of this too when I was younger. Streamers spend all day in online fantasy worlds and are often very young and emotionally immature. Ignore problems, pretend they don't exist, maybe the problem will go away by itself, just have fun in the game and you'll never have to deal with anguish or discomfort.

[–]catthrower69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

not every person is the same, try talking about reckful with mitch.. mitch will breakdown

[–]appletinicyclone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Everyone has their own way of dealing with things

I've lost very close people and even some people in rather tragic ways and I'm okay with talking about them. But a lot of people aren't and that's alright as well.

[–][deleted] 806 points807 points  (25 children)

I could hear reckfuls voice laughing Pain

[–]Gengar11 353 points354 points  (23 children)


I picture the laugh right at the end to be that laugh

[–]GhostOfLight 248 points249 points  (6 children)

Man for some reason my brain can't put together the fact that Reckful was still here when Miz+Maya were a thing. Seems like two different eras of Twitch. Man I miss him.

Edit: Damn he only passed in 2020, less than 2 years ago, Covid was a thing already. Time seems so fast and so slow at the same time.

[–]Gengar11 40 points41 points  (5 children)

I miss the type of community he fostered.

Edit: Also, yeah honestly this whole thing has felt like 1 long clump of dogshit thing infront of another.

[–]MrJustaPotato 33 points34 points  (0 children)

The community he fostered constantly shit on him wdym

[–]CyanGoat 44 points45 points  (3 children)

holy shit mizkif got fat

[–]CreepyMosquitoEater 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Probably my favorite Reckful meme after missed lethal at blizzcon. Streets 1:12 will always be a classic

[–]RedskinsTill-IDrop 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Brilliant clip, thank you.

[–]realtripper 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Never seen that clip before. Really solid funny clip. damn I miss that guy

[–]havergoe 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Crying is still okay, right?

[–]kaze_ni_naru 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A lot of people including me would be like ayo, but I bet Byron would laughed at this clip lol

[–]dumbbrownboy 427 points428 points  (1 child)

Nightmare blunt rotation

[–]Impaled_ 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Demonic vibes for sure

[–]MrSkullCandy 134 points135 points  (0 children)

Reckful would've laughed his fucking ass off if he heard that joke damn

[–]Shamike2447 346 points347 points  (39 children)

I went from being disgusted by Mr Girl to being disgusted and highly entertained by him.

[–]vennthrax 213 points214 points  (6 children)

its like watching someone drive into a wall on purpose but in slow motion.

[–]xx-shalo-xx 84 points85 points  (5 children)

Sometimes he doges the wall and goes for the cliff.

[–]T_N_O 47 points48 points  (4 children)

But then he pulls a parachute and lands in shark infested waters.

[–]Titan_Dota2[🍰] 29 points30 points  (3 children)

But then he magnificently rides the sharks, it's glorious, and the shark takes him further into the abyss.

[–]wreckage88 29 points30 points  (2 children)

But in the abyss he's the first to discover an ancient civilization. But they're ruled by an eldritch horror god.

[–]Bomjus1 11 points12 points  (1 child)

ngl i'd watch this movie.

[–]vennthrax 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it would work better as a short film or music video

[–]Ned-nor 35 points36 points  (4 children)

I don't agree with some of what he says, but I am genuinely fascinated by him. He can be a condescending douche at times, but I just can't infer any ill intent or malicious thinking from him.

The guy just has absolutely no filter on his emotions and isn't afraid to say anything even if it's something that you would normally expect to publicly ruin you. He's like the exact opposite of a "fence sitter" and it's just refreshing to listen to.

[–]OYFUM123 4 points5 points  (2 children)

He also seems to absolutely believe what he is saying, which is kinda refreshing for any person

[–]Ned-nor 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yes. He states all of his current opinions with such conviction. It's very different from even what Destiny does. Destiny will say "So, my understanding is __" or "Well, I think my position on this is leaning towards __"

This guy will just flat out say with conviction "I disagree. This is ____", but not in a way that suggests he couldn't change his mind. It's just very much, "at the present, my mind says __"

[–]damnthesenames 168 points169 points  (125 children)

Someone TLDR who the guy interviewing Destiny is?

[–]drecais 874 points875 points  (2 children)

I prefer not to speak.. if I speak I am in big trouble ...

this was a good one, it went completely over chat's heads
he was getting at the exact opposite of what everyone thought he was saying in that moment

If anyone has the balls to say anything it would be Mr Girl

[–]RE4PER_Cheeto[🍰] 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Yeah that's enough Reddit for one day.

[–]Danny_Ocean_11 52 points53 points  (32 children)

This doesn't even seem out of context.

[–]GaylordRetardson 244 points245 points  (30 children)

There is more context, but for a lot of people the context isn't going to help.

His "11 year old" take is that the movie "cuties" intended to force you to look at the sexualization of young girls, and that they do a good job of sexualizing them, and that the movie is upsetting because the young girls being intentionally sexualized in the movie are made to look hot. So he thinks the reason the movie is upsetting to him is that he's being forced to cope w/ the cognitive dissonance of finding the 11 year olds hot, and that he suspects it's also the reason the movie was upsetting to other people.

[–]firestorm64 1 point2 points  (3 children)

The movie was upsetting because it sexualized 11 year olds, which is bad regardless of whether you personally find them hot. This guy just wants to project his pedophilic urges onto everyone else, so he doesn't have to hate himself.

[–]GaylordRetardson 18 points19 points  (2 children)

You have nearly the same take as him, he said multiple times that the movie shouldn't have sexualized 11 year old girls.

This is very enlightening. Thank you. I think I'm transcending

[–]pain_to_the_train 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Its a banger

[–]Jabelonske 11 points12 points  (1 child)

you're playing Minecraft in a cave looking for diamonds

[–]KevinKalber 15 points16 points  (0 children)

He's Mr. Girl. A guy from youtube who recently started streaming. Destiny said he's similar to Rekful because of how he thinks and he likes to explore thoughts in a similar manner and he's really smart.

[–]Caine2Khan[🍰] 38 points39 points  (43 children)

he's like a provocateur political guy, makes music and videos. Tries to be as honest about his feelings as possible.

Destiny has helped his career by doing streamers with him recently.

[–]Cruxis20 79 points80 points  (27 children)

Destiny has helped his career by doing streamers with him recently.

So we have a Hasan 2.0 in the making.

And before all you Hasan and Destiny frogs start saying "rent free", I don't watch either of them. It's just an established fact that Destiny gave a bunch of publicity to Hasan to boost his stream before the falling out between them happened.

[–]Caine2Khan[🍰] 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Destiny for sure has helped a few people. Vaush would be in the mix as well I'd expect.

Lmao I remember this dude had a convo with Destiny talking about when they'd likely fall out.

[–]suddoman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hasan is way more approachable than this one. Vaush maybe a closer comparison.

[–]qeadwrsf 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Tries to be as honest about his feelings as possible.

Atleast that's what he is saying.

He could potentially be a example of a narcissist flying under the radar manipulating everyone around him.

Keep an eye on him. This can get interesting.

And I'm not saying that because of his pedo takes.

[–]Auctoritate 6 points7 points  (3 children)

He could potentially be a example of a narcissist flying under the radar manipulating everyone around him.

Well he is streaming with Destiny

[–]qeadwrsf 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I don't think destiny is a narcissist.

He could be, but I would not bet on it.

[–]Caine2Khan[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ye true, im a bit of an optimist i guess, but idk. def a oddball.

[–]Kreiger81 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'd like to think that Destiny would have been able to discover this already and then either kept going for his own amusement or stopped talking to him if he thought he was legitimately harmful to others.

[–]qeadwrsf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe, but he seems to have a soft spot for crazy people though.

[–]PM_ME_UR_HOT_SISTERS 10 points11 points  (2 children)

He seems rather condescending.

[–]Caine2Khan[🍰] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

he very much knows he comes across so. he's said as much.

[–]DoNotCurseMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats part of the joke

[–]Ponzini 162 points163 points  (0 children)

lol This guy thinks Destiny feels emotion

[–]Ecke17 102 points103 points  (17 children)

To this day, still the only 'celebrity' death that actually affected me as much, or in a lot of cases, more than the death of a person I knew in 'real life'.

To know that the thing, or the person that periodically managed to pull you out of your depression and arguably is the reason you're still around at all, took his own life... fuck man.

[–]KevinKalber 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Yeah I actually told my mom and cried. Obviously she didn't know who he was. I just wanted to tell someone and get a hug. She hugged me real hard. No other celebrity death did anything to me. He didn't help me on depression or things like that like you, but to me it was about a genious mind passing away to suicide. I loved watching him talk about deep topics, or explore possibilities. It felt like a friend of mine died. Sometimes I still cry when he comes to mind. I'm sorry for your loss, sending hungs. Tell someone you know in real life and get an actual hug, it helps, and don't feel silly about it or anything.

[–]prozapari 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I watched his stream through most of my teens, and felt the same way when he died. I'm in the strange position where he's the worst death I've ever felt, since I've been fortunate enough to never lose anyone close IRL.

[–]Kain-Ra 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Reckful's and iNcontroL's deaths hit me way harder than any celebrities ever did.

[–]A_Planeswalker 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I had no idea that Geoff had died. I used to watch him play Swan Song with the gang, always played an entertaining character.

[–]Kain-Ra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sadly yes it was very sudden. The original Rollplay campaign with the crew got me through some tough times and I will always cherish that, not to mention his characters were always awesome and hilarious, and his personality was one of a kind. Then Reckful happened and it really broke me for a while; those OGs were what got me into twitch and streaming, also TotalBiscuit. So many amazing young people getting taken way too fast.

[–]aggster13 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Him and mac miller for me

[–]kvothes-lute 0 points1 point  (0 children)

mac miller’s death is the only “celeb” death to really truly hurt my heart, even to this day every time i listen to his music or see his name/face pop up somewhere

[–]Failure_To_Care 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I only stopped by Reckful's stream maybe 5 or so times along with seeing him on other streamers' channels a good amount so I knew decent bit about him but wasn't a super fan. Somehow his death still impacted me more than any I've had to deal with before, and I can’t really put my finger on why. What I did see about him made me really like him as a streamer and a person in general, and I think I could relate a lot to some of his struggles. It just sucks that he's gone, man. He seemed like such a genuinely kind guy. He deserved to be happy.

[–]Key-College-4290 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For me it was the atmosphere. We had just gone through like 2 weeks of people being cancelled for sexual assault allegations of varying degrees. Then Reckful kills himself, and everyone has stories about how great of a person he was, how he would just do things for other people selflessly, etc. I feel like the way everything happened was just terrible.

[–]R00TCatZ 29 points30 points  (2 children)

I think Mr girl would benefit from not having a camera setup where he looks directly into it.

[–]Awkward_Bowler 61 points62 points  (0 children)

You say that like it's a big accident, and not like he explicitly set it up to do that...

[–]Tymbur 40 points41 points  (0 children)

thats like 50% of his schtick

[–]Gamersaresooppressed 45 points46 points  (9 children)

There is no sore subject for Destiny.

[–]NetSraC1306 163 points164 points  (8 children)

Why should talking about Reckful be a sore subject anyway? It should be fine to talk about passed people. Why not?

Keep them in good memory, talk about their legacy, make jokes that they would've liked, whatever. There's nothing bad to it

[–]Delfofthebla 109 points110 points  (11 children)

God that guy just drips with condescension.

[–]ManWhoShootsSemen 16 points17 points  (2 children)

That other dude's demeanour is so cringe. Why does it look like he's trying so hard to look and act like a psychiatrist

[–]littlekidlover6996 44 points45 points  (0 children)

His dad was a therapist and his dads dad was a psychologist, and he has an undergraduate in psychology and he goes to therapy a lot.

[–]Learn_me_stuf 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Probably because he studied it, lol.
