Jeff Buser - The Traveler, Track 7: Ad Vice
<! -- Here goes the text -- !>
This song was largely inspired by a Dilbert cartoon in which Dogbert writes a self - help book. Dilbert notes that Dogbert's book will help the author far more than the reader, and Dogbert makes the pithy observation that successful people don't want company. I take the slightly less cynical view that the value of any advice one receives, no matter how good it might seem, is still dependent on the motivation of the one who gives it, and also upon the ends to which the recipient applies it.
Synopsis: Progressive metal musings on dubious advice.
