T.G. Swenson

A Tumblr with no central theme except to share things that amuse or interest me. I am 25 years old and living in Iowa City, IA with my wife and loving every moment of it. I'm an English major at the University of Iowa with a focus on creative writing. I love reading books and comics, writing fiction (especially fantasy), collecting old books and books with interesting inscriptions in them, watching all sorts of movies, playing video games (PS3 ID: TessionTG, PC - Steam: Swenny), hockey (Buffalso Sabres, Minnesota Wild and the Iowa Wild, and the St. Louis Blues).

What subjects will you see here: Anime, manga, comic books, super heroes, video games, rpgs, jrpgs, books, fantasy fiction, science fiction, creative writing, maybe some of my own fiction if I muster up the courage to share, favorite quotes, hockey, maybe some personal views of mine, art, illustrations (those that I find worth sharing and tend to be fantasy/sci-fi), concept art (for video games, books, comics, etc), things relating to Iowa/Iowa City,aaaand some other stuff but that is most of it.

This is a note put on the piano at the Haunted Bookshop in Iowa City, IA. My favorite place to hang out and relax, see/pet some cats, play checkers or chess (don’t know how to play chess but it is an option), and/or read. Oh and purchase books of course.

Piano Rules

  • NO cups on the piano or bench
  • NO Chopsticks
  • NO Für Elise
  • NO Heart & Soul

Not even if you’re Maurizio Pollini!
