Whether you are a successful artist, an unproven entity, or struggling to create while working a 9-5, there is a common thread amongst most creative types: a depression that is kept at bay by producing new works. Art can serve an artist much in the same way any drug might.
“Self Medicated” is a new film about art, artists, and their struggles to stay happy. The Antagonist Movement was formed by a group of unknown artists in 2000. Begun in bars and clubs of the Lower East Side, the movement promoted lesser-known works by up-and-coming talent. Over the last thirteen years the Antagonist Movement has grown and expanded from its base in New York to show in cities around the world, including Berlin, Lisbon, and Quito. This film documents the entire history of the Antagonist Movement and the artists involved, employing animation, stop-motion film techniques, interviews, and a killer soundtrack that spans the globe. From the street to the gallery and back again, “Self Medicated” reveals a new wave in art from the last American art movement.
A spoon rest is pretty simple, but I’ve never had one. I’ve thought about it, that maybe I should get one. I’ve stacked and arranged spoons on other spoons to avoid a messy stove top. Pretty much, I’ve become a master at never owning one.
Until one day I realized, I had just the thing! Plastic coasters that I have no attachment to other than that my Aunt Maria gave them to me. I don’t have a memory of her ever using them or buying them. I don’t know why she gave them to me. They’re not my style or my colors (black, gold and purple) but they are pretty glamorous. Don’t you think? Hello 1982.
Either way, I highly recommend coasters as a spoon rest. If you forgot to wash it the night before, you have another one ready to use. Obviously, make sure it’s washable before you plunge into the coaster as a spoon rest abyss.
The tuna sandwich, you probably had it numerous times going to school and now it’s a go-to for your work lunch. Simple, quick and tasty. The way I learned to make a tuna sandwich was to add a tablespoon of mayo to a can of tuna and stir until even. It wasn’t until recently when I thought to make it a little more exciting! Below is the simple recipe that only adds maybe an extra 90 seconds to making this sandwich.
- 1 can of Tuna (drained)
- 1 Carrot (grated)
- 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 1 Teaspoon Cumin
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Mayo
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
Add all of the ingredients to the tuna, mix until even. Place on bread with lettuce, tomato and onion or on top of a bed of lettuce with desired salad additions.
