News round up!

Hey everyone! Great to be back, I missed you. Couple of news items to get through so let’s crack on.

Unshaved Mouse has been longlisted for the Blog Awards Ireland 2016.


This means that I will be (hopefully) by doing a new limited series of mini reviews, one post every two days throughout September (if I live). More details closer to the time.

Unshaved Mouse is now four years old and wears big boy pants.

Big thanks to everyone who’s stuck with me for the last four years. You guys rock and without your support I doubt very much I would have stuck with it this long. Four years is a long time. But do you know what’s also a long time? Two weeks. Two weeks is a hell of a long time to wait between reviews and so I’ve decided to do something about it. Which is why…drumroll please, I’d like to introduce you to the blog’s new movie reviewer!

Announcing the Bald Frog reviews!

So my good buddy Finbarr Doyle, playwright, actor and owner of an unlimited Cineworld membership is going to be doing regular reviews of new movie releases, meaning that the blog will no longer be a barren wasteland thirteen days out of every fourteen. Give him a warm welcome. He’ll be favouring us with his wit, his artistic insight and inchoate rage starting next week.


“You’re welcome, plebs.”

(And, as always, thanks to Julie Android for the awesome artwork.)


  1. Congratulations on the nomination and the anniversary! And welcome, Frog! I look forward to reading your reviews.

  2. Mouse, you magnificent bastard! Hope the break did you some good, glad to see you’re back!

    Looking forward to what this Froggy fellow has to say (will we see any co-written Disney/Marvel reviews?), and congrats on being shortlisted again!

    Good to have you back, we’ve all missed you dearly =)

  3. A new guy, eh? Well, this should be fascinating. Hopefully he’s not going to end up like the last guest reviewer on here. And hopefully I haven’t thwarted your very stealthy plans to make that happen. Sorry, keeping quiet isn’t my strong suit.

    In any case, this ought to be good!

  4. Awesome! The more reviews, the better! I’m happy to see the blog getting bigger and bigger, you deserve it! 🙂

  5. Congratulations on your nomination and your newly expanded biome! I look forward to Finbarr’s rabid ranid rage. (Apologies to you, Finbarr, if you’re actually from another taxonomic family, like Microhylidae or possibly Kermitidae.)
