Feeling sluggish? Don’t worry our friend, you are not alone. It is a Monday after all. Worse, it is still three days before sweldo.

We do have something to distract you with until that awesome day comes:  the most attention-grabbing headlines from the weekend that was. Geeks, LOTR fans, and Kia Sorento non-fans, assemble!

1) AN IDEA WE’RE NOT SURE IS TOTALLY BENEFICIAL TO LIFE AS WE KNOW IT: Japanese Hobbyists Build A Working Transformer

Japanese hobbyists Kenji Ishida and Wataru Yoshizaki have built a real-life Transformer. Called the J-deite Quarter (weird name, right?) the robot can walk and can transform into a sports car that can drive around autonomously. It stands at four feet tall, with its moral orientation (is it an Autobot or Decepticon?) still unknown.

Kia may have won their first game, but against a veteran team, the Sorentos showed their inexperience. The league’s fan favorites, Ginebra, went on a 23-2 run in the second quarter to pull away from the expansion team, before finishing the game, 87-55. Knockout!
