When trying to spread information on our new Horiyoshi III book, "Ryushin", via Facebook yesterday, something odd happened. Suddenly facebook wanted me to confirm my identity by adding a mobile phone. However facebook doesn't support mobile phone carriers from Sweden so there was no way I could do that technically.
Now my option was to obtain a code so I could upload my mobile phone number anyway, but in order to do this I have to be logge in, which is impossible since I cannot add a phone. Catch 22 indeed. I then turned to my Iphone for facebook acess, but there I can't log in either. Facebook says my username and password is incorrect (which it is not. Tried a million times). so here we are - Facebookless at the peak of our publishing efforts. One can only smile, and miss the age of the homing pigeon a little bit.

Otherwise the day has been spent mailing out pressreleases to tattoo magazines. Quite a mindnumbing task after a while. Nevertheless, I pushed through, so that is taken care of as well.

So what to do now? I am preparing three sneak previews of the paintings featured in the book for tomorrows blog. Be sure to stop back for that little event as well.
