Sad day, very sad day. We often forget that we're creatures with an expiration date and that goes for ourselves and how we perceive everyone else. It's only in what we leave behind that we can extend that time beyond the time we move on from this world.

After reading all the goodbye messages here, I think Magnus will live on in all of us far longer into the future than he might have ever figured for himself. I never knew him beyond the awesome videos I've seen of his, but to all those who dud and mourn his lost, stay strong and always remember him. Always.

I was planning on doing a best of 2011 stream on Saturday, but now I think I will stream all of Magnus videos. Current time is set for 8PM EST Saturday - Feb 25th.

Good time to sit down, enjoy the good works he has done, and just generally chat and remember one of us.

He got his first attack during his visit with Victor Hedström at my place, during summer 2010. He was in pain and I had to follow him with the ambulance to the hospital while Victor stayed home and watched over my place. At the hospital, I stayed with him over the night and watched over him. The doctors over there presumed that it was just a ''kidney stone'' and it was highly treatable, but fate was wasn't as kind. After a few test to another hospital, they found out that he had a high risk of cancer in this left kidney, and he was put into treatment immediatly.

After a year, they managed to get the cancer out of his system, but it came back and this time it was on one of his legs. At this stage, the doctor announced that it was too late to cure it, as it was already at that stage and it would spread again if they were to do the same treatment. After hearing that, he had two options to choose from, to either detach one of his legs and live a couple of years more, or to live with the time he had left. In the end, he choosed to live as himself and wanted to treasure that time he had left, and this is exactly what the person I've known throughout all of these years, would've done. He would never give up and live his life to his fullest.

I've known Magnus ever since I went to that one convention in Sweden back in 2006. At first he looked like a shy person and he looked a bit lost since he was searching for me (we arranged our first date <3 ) When I finally got to meet him, the first words he said ''Your Danzeh video was bad'' I laughed strangely and there we began our friendship We started speaking about future project together after we got home from the convention and talked a little bit about our history. We had a lot in common but at the same time not, we still got along together. He was always being so energetic about his projects and more importantly, he was passionate about them which I always admired about him. He may be cocky in many occasions, but I never talked back to him back then because I knew he was still young and it's normal, and beside I'm rarely angry to anyone, and he knew that. When he decides to be kind to someone, and someone like me, he becomelsos one of the sweetest person I've ever met. People would often ask me how I could keep up with such a person, I realise then, even though he might be quite rough at times, I know this person has a kind heart, so I always took everything he said and didn't mind it that much.

Through this person, I've also got the chance to meet Victor (NeverendAMV) in a lot of occasions, and always had the best time together and formed ''The Swedish Trio'' eventually. Magnus invited me to follow him to Victor's place, but I didn't know the person so I wasn't unsure about it at first. After spending time with both of them that first time, I was really happy I went along with Magnus and most important of all, he introduced me to a new friend. Eventually he introduced to other people aswell, which I've become close friends with.

I can't thank him enough for what he have done for me and for the rest of us. I just regret, I couldn't tell him all of this before he left, and I should've been there for him when he needed to, which I didn't do. He was like a little brother to me and he would sometime open up telling me that he wanted to do the same thing as me in the future. Thinking about those words today, hurted me deeply and I was lost of words.

Sorry for the long post, this is something I thought about while I was taking my walk and remembered my memories with him.

Well the last post i see on my facebook app was

"My stomach is ridiculous... Ouh."

And that was written on Monday.
What i can say is, that he was a guy who never giving up.
I dont know but this news hit me really hard. We didnt talk that often and the last month i was never online and feel sorry for it, that i cant say something to him anymore.
Everyone should take a part of him in his/her heart, the part that was never giving up and love the life as we can live.

I would like to express my deepest sympathy, to his family and all people around him.

Todd said it perfectly, we didn't talk as much as I wish we had, but I'm proud to have you as a friend.

You were truly inspiring and I was so excited to have you come stay with us, cause I know it would have been the most fun. We would have rocked the collab we were going to make. You were the most unique and amazing person with the greatest outlook on life and people.

"I shall dub thee mags! And you shall be my mags!" Forever and always darling, you touched everyone who knew you and it was an honor to be your friend. I love you miss you already Mags <3

I didn't know Magnus very well, but when I started amvs back in 2006 on youtube he was one of my biggest inspirations. It really sucks to have to see him go. I really hope this could just be some super sick joke.

Magnus, I will miss your presence here on the forums. Being able to read your thoughts/opinions; even having our small conversations. It will be saddening to know that when someone uploads a picture it won't be yours showing us your stylish clothes, good looks, and amazing hair. I will definitely master that eye trick ^_~, so I can look half as good as you always did. I just wish I could show you once I do.

Everyone will miss and remember you, loved ones and those from all over the world. You have greatly impacted so many not just through editing, but by being you.

I didn't get to know Magnus very well until recently. Needless to say he was one of the most strong-willed people I've ever met because he would never let his condition or his prognosis bring him down. He lived every day setting out to do the things he loved and spend them with the people who love him.

It goes without saying that you will be sorely missed buddy, both by the community as well as family and friends.

Another loss. :( I also didn't know him well, but I'd seen a few of his videos and enjoyed them.

I have to say, after reading through this whole thread and seeing how he's affected people, I feel an ache. But I feel like you all, as a community, have helped him have a fulfilling and love-filled life. You should all be proud and grateful to have contributed to goodness in his life, and I'm sure it was appreciated.

Damn it. I thought he made it through this time too...
It always amazed me how he'd always endure and keep living to his fullest despite what was happening to him. A true example for anybody.
You will be missed, bro. RIP.

When I saw this, I was working and I felt so incredibly sad. And I looked around me to see my coworkers on their computers just working and I thought to myself "How can everything be so normal?". I didn't know Magnus. I've watched his videos many, many times, commented on them and we probably exchange some words on youtube. He was one of those people that I would watch from far away. Why? I have no idea... it just didn't happen. But that didn't stop me from being really sad today. Probably because of how much I admired him from fighting all of this with a smile until the end.

I've been reading your comments until now and I see how many lifes he touched with his courage. By remembering him as an inspiration to our lifes, I'm sure he will never be forgotten <3

Nothing will ever be the same again.

He was such a strong person, and although I didn't know him, I thought he was amazing especially because of the fact that he battled cancer. A few of my family members have lost their lives to cancer (liver and kidney, no other places) and I admired him for being so strong when I couldn't even be for my family members.

He was also one of my favorite editors.

Rest in peace.
