The Ten Best Flip-flops

Keep your feet cool with a pair of these funky flip-flops

Dom Joly: A celebrity flip-flop: now my collection is complete

I think my little boy Jackson is influenced by all the wrong role models. First it was the Tellytubbies, and he started making annoying nonsensical noises. Then it was the Power Rangers and he started to get quite violent – throwing shapes around the place and karate-chopping me when I was watching TV. Now it's gone one worse – he seems to be under the influence of Matthew McConaughyee, Maconahayee, Mcconahauhie... Mahogany – Matthew Mahogany, the Texan actor most famous for never wearing a shirt and nude bongo-playing sessions. Jackson has taken the Mahogany ethos to heart – he spends the days permanently nude wandering around our lakeside cottage deep in the heart of Ontario. Often he'll wander through the woods and down to the dock where he'll loll about naked and wave to passing boats.

Obituary: Moondog

WHEN I lived in Manhattan, checking out Moondog was a regular occurrence, writes Jack Adrian [further to the obituary by Richard Williams, 15 September]. The night I landed at JFK, my friend the artist Barry Windsor Smith said, "Hey man, you gotta see this weird old guy in the Viking helmet thump his tub." He was somewhat aggrieved when I said, "You mean Moondog."
