SEAN FARBER LEAVES DAATH TO PURSUE HIS “INTENSIVE PURPOSES”

100

Sean Farber, the recently departed singer for Daath, has issued an update regarding his leaving the band:

“We all have a limited time on this sphere of possibilities. For all intensive [sic] purposes, the years I have to be viable enough to do anything with are approaching the halfway mark.”

“Intensive purposes?” Dude, that doesn’t even make any sense!

Farber then continues:

“I have developed new interests and more goals in life. The goals I have set in my life are:

1. To be a successful musician.
2. To travel the world.
3. To sustain myself without supporting multinational corporations.
4. To open a brewery.
5. To open a restaurant.
6. To start my own religion.

“So far I have been able to accomplish three of these things (in no particular order). I need to spend the next half of my viable years completing the rest.”

I’m actually having a hard time deciding which of these three goals Farber has accomplished: he was certainly, for a time, a successful musician, and I imagine, touring with Daath, he has now traveled the world; but as the member of a band on Roadrunner (a subsidiary of Warners, which is itself a subsidiary of Time Warner), he certainly hasn’t managed to sustain himself “without supporting multinational corporations.” Does he own a brewery or a restaurant? I honestly don’t know the answer, but I somehow doubt it. Perhaps he ought to add “getting an education” to this list?

Let the ongoing debate about whether or not metalheads are idiots continue. In the meantime, we wish Farber all the luck in the world in starting his own religion.
