fuckmonday.jpgAlright boys and girls, it's that time again. Monday morning is here, and unlike the upbeat nature of Joey Tribbiani and his singing neighbour, I hate mornings. But Monday just seems to be the worst. The weekend is done and dusted, everyone is back to work and it's another long week until the weekend perks up, and of course, work needs to get done.

Well, as per usual, here's some things from around the web to keep you distracted from your day job and the long week ahead.

  • Album Cover Combo's: I don't think I could have ever imagined this, but alas, here it is. From the creative process of someone's mind, here's a bunch of album covers put together to make up some pretty weird images. From a dude wearing heels, to Bowie looking even more feminine than usual, all these pieces of art are brilliant and you wonder if they were ever intentionally made like this. [Buzzfeed]

  • Drugs: Right, if there's a way to get heroin through JFK Airport, this isn't the way to do it. A Nigerian woman who claims she was pregnant was instead hiding about $20k worth of heroin in her, er, lady parts. Yeah. [Gawker]

  • Sweet Mother of God: Remember that guy who apparently hacked a ton of celebrity phones and stole their nude pics? Scarlett Johansson was a previous victim, but apparently Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn have had their personal pictures spilled onto the world wide web. All I can say is Olivia Munn is a dirty, dirty girl. [The Daily What]

  • Late Night: We all know that Jimmy Fallon does a fantastic Neil Young impression, but this one is pretty much more rad than usual. Paired up with Bruce Springsteen and singing a rendition of LMFAO's 'Sexy and I Know It', Fallon gets the crowd going at what he does best. Flex those muscles. [Late Night with Jimmy Fallon]

  • Interview: Junnnktank have a sweet interview with model/photographer Lauren Peralta alongside with her work and is definitely worth a read if only for her awesome photography skills. [Junnnktank]

  • Crossover Time: The guys over at StabYourself have made a pretty awesome crossover. Taking the Portal gun and dropping it into Super Mario, the game dubbed Mari0 is a great way to play Mario with some fantastic new mechanics and puzzles. Plus it has hats. Gabe would be proud. [StabYourself]
  • Discuss: The Wind Waker was known for being quite the controversial tale in the Zelda franchise, and is often met with mixed views. Have a read of this short article over at our sister site, Zelda Informer, and sound off in the comments with your views on the cel-shaded adventure. [Zelda Informer]

  • Read This: While we said that the Playstation 4 might be stomping the competition in the future, here in the present, Microsoft says they'll be the strongest ever in 2012. [SlashGear]
Enjoy the rest of the day and try to survive the week for The Hangover.

It's Monday.

fuckmonday.jpg Alright, no one in the history of the world likes Mondays. They're terrible. It's the start of a long week, the weekend is over, and stuff needs to get done.

So to help you prepare for the day ahead and the long week coming, here's some stuff to keep you extremely distracted.

  • Oscars Crap: Alright, alright, I'm sure not many people care about who actually won at the Oscars, but here's something completely different: J-Lo's Nipple has a Twitter account. Coming from the almost-mishap on stage, Jezebel informs us that the Oscars has some humor outside of its serious award giving. [Jezebel]

  • More Oscars Crap: Okay that was a lie, another Twitter account has become a reality from the bizarreness that is the Oscars. Fresh from the red carpet, Angelina Jolie's right leg had a bit of a hard time staying put inside her dress, and of course, now has a Twitter account. [The Daily What]

  • MWC2012: Nokia has gone a bit crazy and has unveiled a 41-megapixel toting camera phone over in Barcelona. Gizmodo UK sat down with Nokia's lead programme manager for imaging to talk about the monstrosity that has emerged from the Finnish company. The Nokia 808 can capture pictures in very high-resolution glory, but just be careful what you point and shoot at - as it could be a bit too clear. [Gizmodo UK]

  • Over in China: Kotaku has a nice write-up of the three biggest gaming companies that you've definitely never heard of. Yeah, not quite Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo, but rather, a penguin, a big G (not Google!) and a company that has numbers for their URL. [Kotaku]

  • Chatting and Talking: Kill Screen sit down with Syndicate's producer, writer and art director about the future and what's to come in the next few years. [Kill Screen]
Enjoy the working day and try and survive the week for The Hangover.
