All the best to you in 2012!

A set of New Year’s wallpapers is now available in the Flickr stream. Here is a sample. Enjoy!

And, as usual, we have big plans for the Byrneholics website this coming year. Work on the Gallery continues, some new widgets will be available soon (including a “what’s new in the Gallery” widget), and a video archive is in the early stages of development. More Mega Movie Pages are on the list, too, of course.

Your support for the website and in the Forum is much appreciated! Here’s to a wonderful year for us all in general–and for Gabriel Byrne specifically!

So, what was your favorite Gabriel Byrne event/appearance/accomplishment/whatever this past year? And what are you looking forward to that is Byrne-related in 2012? Share in the comments!

If I have to pick one thing, I would say I was so impressed with his curation of the MOMA film retrospective and his work with Other Voices. Oops–that is two! And for the future? Well, he has 5 films in the pipeline and I am looking forward to ALL of them!

Happy New Year!

    HAP——-PPY NEW YEAR. I want to take this time to say thank you and all your partners in (crime) for making my small life a little bigger and more enriched. I will not ever I don’t think really tell you how much I really feel about all of you. A great BIG THANK YOU from a small little life. OOOXXX

    • Kim, Happy New Year to you! I’m so happy that you love what is going on here. I always feel like this place is just starting out, but we’ve been going for awhile, it is true. Still so much to do! Looking forward to the future with you and my partners in crime. Love, Stella

  2. Difficult question, to choose only one special event with Gabriel. But here I go, I choose Saints and Sinners : A Reading, an event Imagine Ireland hosted. May 30th in New York.

    It made me discover Edna O’Brien and her work, and I am very grateful about that. (Loved Saints and Sinners very much when I read it.)

    I also found the photos of Gabriel and Edna from that event to be very lovely.

    So, my favorite Byrne-ing moment was, of course, meeting Gabriel went he came to France for the GOAL charity ball.
    And I’m looking forward to all his films coming this year ! 2012 sounds so exciting ! ;)

  4. Much love and happy new year to everyone.

  5. Just need a place to say a BIG Thank You for the many new gorgeous Gabriel wallpapers you have made lately Stella! Many people at work have admired your great wallpapers on my PC screen!

    • Thanks, Nora! I am glad you are enjoying the wallpapers. I am working on a new series, “To Poetry,” and the first one went up yesterday. More to come. Thanks for your support! :-)
