Happy Monday, everyone. On to art news...

A Russian woman bought a ceramic mug at the Louvre's gift shop and then promptly threw it at the Mona Lisa. The article goes on to say, "Doctors were trying to assess whether she was suffering from Stendhal Syndrome, a rare condition in which often perfectly sane individuals momentarily lose all reason and attack a work of art. " Really? Wow!

A Toronto subway station is temporarily transformed into several different scenes by artist Justin Broadbent. I think I like the chandelier one the best.

Married to the Sea has really been hitting it out of the park lately.

The New Yorker has a series on Leonard Bernstein and the files created on him by the FBI. The part about his "Mass" work is particularly interesting.

I'm intrigued by tilt-shift photography. Is it difficult?

Albus Cavus is doing really neat things in the world of community art. Go and look.

Rifftrax, made up of many of the same people who brought you Mystery Science Theatre 3000, is going to be simulcasting a live riffing of Plan 9 From Outer Space in theatres nationwide! If a cinema near you is on the list, go there on August 20th and experience the fun. (There seems to be a definitive lack of options for my area, but it looks as if most states are carrying this somewhere.)

OMG: The following made me snort water out my nose! There's a diagnosis for everything these days, isn't there?

Doctors were trying to assess whether she was suffering from Stendhal Syndrome, a rare condition in which often perfectly sane individuals momentarily lose all reason and attack a work of art.

Uh...I thought the proper DSMIV classification was "crazy bitch."
