Day 65: Behold! The Sole Of Rassilon!

The FX budget stretched to a marker pen today in the 365-day charity trainers challenge for Alzheimer’s Research…

Day 65. That seems a lot of days. Then I realise that means there are exactly 300 days to go. And that seems like an awful lot of days. Suddenly it doesn’t feel like I’ve even scrathed the surface of this challenge yet. So go on (if you haven’t already) – make a donation to encourage me to carry on.

Today’s pair are some good, old-fashioned, black, school plimsolls. Every indie music lover who refuses to grow old should have a pair. These ones are now 100% cooler/geekier/maybe both depending on your point of view with the addition of a lovingly hand-drawn (meaning, scribbled in five minutes) Seal Of Rassilon on the sole. Hence, Sole Of Rassilon. See what I did there?

Loving the completely accidental moody lighting, too. Exactly the kind of lighting Peter Davison complains Doctor Who didn’t have in the ’80s on every blimmin’ DVD audio commentary he does. Bless him.

Oh yeah, and guess who’s come to the Vine party late?

Anyway, working from home today as later I have to cycle into Bristol to interview might comics scribe Rob Williams, who, not so completely coincidentally, is currently writing Doctor Who comics for Titan amongst other things. You bet I’m going to ask about that.

See you here tomorrow!

Usual sign-off:

Current total: £530

• Follow me on Twitter to make sure you see what trainers I’m wearing each day.

• If you have any trainers you could donate (either on loan or old pairs you’re getting rid of) which are size 9 (ish – I can do anything from 8 to 10) contact me at so we can arrange collection.
