It’s that time of year again…

And lo it came to pass that the call once again went out throughout the realm of Irish blogdom. And the call was: “Dance, monkeys, dance!”

Yes, it’s time for the Blog Awards Ireland 2014 and I’m hoping that, like last year, one of you kind folks would be willing to nominate me. Last year Unshaved Mouse did very well, getting nominations for best Newcomer and Humour blog and even getting shortlisted for best Pop Culture Blog. This time around I’m no longer eligible for best Newcomer (bit too long in the tooth) but if you wanted to nominate me for the Arts & Culture (not Pop Culture), Humour and Best Blog Post categories that’d be just swell.

And don’t forget, getting nominated means I have to work extra hard to get your votes meaning more content between regular uploads, more articles, more best-of lists and basically me being your bitch to the exclusion of all dignity from now until the middle of September.

What’s not to love?

 Nomination page is here. Thanks guys.


  1. Mouse, we’re going to need a few things.

    1. your email address.
    2.What county you reside in.

    Then I’ll get you nominated.

  2. Holy cow, it’s already been a year since the awards last happened? Holy cow that went by quickly

  3. Been enjoying your blog for the past month or so. Kept me up quite late a few times to catch up with your brilliant dissection of the Disney canon. I’ll nominate you. And your little dog too.

      1. But that’s what I love most about your dog. That and the storyof a mouse owning a dog both of which control a vast online empire may be the greatest movie I have never seen.

  4. I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while now, and I must say it is fantastic. So fantastic that I was compelled to create my own WordPress just so I could comment. (Btw, I nominated you, even though I don’t live in Ireland. Is that allowed? I don’t care. :P)
    Anyway, you’ve helped to inspire my love of animation, and I look forward to your posts every Thursday. Keep doing what you’re doing. 🙂

  5. Wow, that was very quick. It seems like the awards ended a few months ago. Nonetheless, I nominated you. Hope you win, or get very far this year. Your blog is mainstream now.

    What review is tomorrow? I forgot.
