Hi. I've been sitting on this info for a few days now, thinking about how to break it to you guys. But there really is no good way to tell that kind of news, and you need to know, so there it is.
 
Around 10 days ago, Kain dropped his cat at his girlfriend's place, went back home and killed himself. He was 37 years old.
 
To the best of my knowledge, there's no letter, no messages, no advance warnings, no *nothing*. I never saw it coming, nor do I have any idea why he did it.
 
I last saw him in february. He and his girlfriend came to our place, we ate pulled pork and watched a bad ninja movie together with a few other friends. We laughed a lot, talked about the band he and I were in the process of forming. He showed me the progress he was making on a couple of the songs. He looked all right. I just don't get it.
 
Kain was the proggiest badass in Montreal. But above all else, he was a good *person*, and I miss him already.
 
Fuck. :(
 
(Apologies for the brevity. Words sort of fail me today.)

Oh my god.  I haven't seen him since MAG 10, and had no idea he was having so much trouble.

Damn, that's horrible horrible news. He must have been keeping it all bottled up. 

 

I know a lot of you were pretty close friends with him at one point. My heart goes out to all the people he left behind.

That's heartbreaking. :( He was one of the best, and always was. One of the original members for this place, and he was always a highlight at every shizz event he attended. Rest in peace buddy.

I didn't know him well, but that is tragic news that I'm having trouble processing. My heart goes out to those close to him.

Well shit.

 

I think he was one of my best friends from theshizz and I made it a point to try and check in with him every once in a while to make sure he was ok. I sent my last message last month and never got a response.

 

I wish I'd lived closer and been able to spend more time with him. He was one of the people I talked to the most over the years and I'd definitely call him a brother. It's hard to imagine him gone and not seeing so many of his project ever see the light of day.

 

He did have troubles, he was too hard on himself and a perfectionist who would rather stop working on something rather than release a song/video/etc that he considered less than perfect.

 

I recall that a year or two ago we were talking about growing older and he mentioned something like 'eh, I don't think I'll ever see 50 years'. I tried to talk him out of that kind of thinking at the time and that's when I made more effort to keep in contact. It's sad that he decided to make that sentence a reality.

 

I'll miss him, and it's horrible that such a talented and friendly guy decided to leave. There will definitely be a hole in my heart with him gone, and I'll miss all the talks we had in person and over facebook, not to mention never seeing all those creative things he worked on.

 

RIP my brother.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

holy moley. what a fucking downer. kain was such a nice guy, truly one of the people that helped form the early days of the shizz. so sad. i don't even know what to say. i feel very sorry for his loved ones.

 

a lifetime ago, we saw the minibosses and hung out in montreal. one of the best weekends of my life:

I'll never forget after the minibosses board migrated to theshizz, logging into the booger board and keeping things alive with Kain. His flash videos, playing metal man on guitar, etc, so many great memories.

It's eerie that I happened to be listening to the minibosses when I saw this thread.

FUCK!

 

Kain was such a sweet guy. I was lucky enough to hang out with him a few times and he just had such a kind personality and of course he was a creative genius.  I sometimes would randomly think to myself over the years "I wonder how Kain's doing, hope he's OK" and I regret never personally reaching out to him.  This is fucking terrible news.  By far one of the greatest Shizzies in our family.  

 

<--- He made this avatar for me and I use it for goddamn everything.  He also made a whole video game for me on one of my birthdays and it was like the greatest present ever.  You can download it here: https://www.dropbox....geance.zip?dl=0

 

He will be missed.  

He will be remembered.  

Rest in peace, friend.

 

:(

 

I encourage everyone to post memories or things that Kain has created through the years.  Can't process this right now...
