Five pop culture items we missedJames Spader is intense on "The Office."

1. Tumblr of the day: Cat on My Stuff. It’s like Stuff on My Cat, except the opposite.

2. Twin fail of the day: Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss not only abandoned the appeal of their $65 million settlement with Zuckerberg; now it looks like the duo won’t be getting to row in the 2012 Olympics.

3. Woody win of the day: “Midnight in Paris” has become the highest-grossing Woody Allen film since “Hannah and her Sisters.

4. “Friday Night” news of the day: “Friday Night Lights’” Jesse Plemons (who played Landry Clarke, or the one who looked like a towheaded Matt Damon) has a real-life band that isn’t terrible! Here are Cowboys and Indians with “Troubled Tracks.”
