We last spotted these two picking out a tree with their two footed family members Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell, but now they're doubling up as a workout for mom! For fans of these pooches (I know I am!), that's Taco on the left and the caramel-colored, Better, on the right. The furry poodle mixes are somberly sleek on their way from a private groomer in Calabasas, so sleek perhaps that their little freshly washed paws can't even touch the ground. No matter what, they're cuter and fluffier than ever – maybe they had a blowout, too?!
- Meet Lee Pace! You may now know him from such things as the preciously delicious show "Pushing Daisies." Did you watch the "Pie-lette" episode this week?
- The brand-new trailer for the Johnny Depp-Tim Burton-Helena Bonham Carter movie Sweeney Todd is fantastic. The trailer for 27 Dresses starring Katherine Heigl is... less so.
- Now that it's October, I have a whole new list of must-have things, including the new box set series DVDs of "My So-Called Life."
- October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so check out my spotlight post featuring Kylie Minogue and her white-hot vampy photo.
- The newest Radiohead album comes out October 10 and costs... whatever you want it to cost!
- If you could recast the Winslow Family — and Steve Urkel, of course — who would you cast in "Family Matters"?
- Aside from Britney Spears' new video for "Gimme More," this week I had to check out Alicia Keys' video for "No One" as well as a cute new video for Regina Spektor's "Better."
- Time to weigh in: Do you still care about "Queer Eye" as it begins its fifth and final season on TV? Also, what's your favorite incarnation of "Law and Order"?

Regina Spektor already made one music video for "Better," but apparently, the nature of the song has inspired her to try again. If you're not familiar with the stellar music of this Russian-Jewish songstress, this video is a good introduction, since it features an army of Regina lookalikes with wild hair and icy-blue stares.
It's also a great taste of the quirky, piano-heavy folk pop that Spektor so artfully established on last year's Begin to Hope. Highly recommended for fans of Tori Amos and Feist. If you like the video, be sure to vote it up on VH1's Top 20 Countdown, and to watch, read more
If you're not getting enough sleep at night, you'll end up tired and run-down. If you've tried other ways to get a good night's sleep, but nothing really works, then here's a new idea to test out - Body purifying herbal foot pads from Gaiam.
These foot pads can boost circulation and help remove toxins from your body such as nickel, arsenic, and mercury (which might be the reason you can't sleep in the first place).
You place them on the arches of your feet and wear them while sleeping 8-10 hours. According to the principals of the alternative practice of reflexology, trigger points in the feet affect the rest of your body. When the reflexology points on the arches of your feet are stimulated, it can help you sleep.
Whether you believe this sort of thing works or not is up to you, but they could help you catch up on your zzzz's. The footpads come in a 10-pack and can be purchased from Gaim directly for $24.
