bad vibes, good vibes. meh.

a czech artist called David Cerny was made to apologise after his series of sculptures named Entropa situated at the EU headquarters in Brussels were seen to be making a  mockery of all the member nations. provocation, negativity, bad vibes.

but bad vibes sell. then you head to the cinema and see the latest film by Jim Carrey “Yes, man” which says the complete opposite; that we should say YES to anything and everything we are asked, proposed or recommended to do if we are to make any positive change in our lives. the film is actually pretty bad, but it shows that good vibes also sell.

anything goes. so, that’s why, amongst all the self-help manuals,  pessioptimism has been invented: neither post-optimism nor post-pesimism but a mix of the two, and neither at the same time. the premise is to go against your personal norm, say no to the things you’d normally say yes to and agree to things you would never imagine doing before.

and you’ll see what a difference it makes.
