Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

I Just Paid $1.90 For Gas In St. Cloud (+ Gas Price Finder)

If you would have told me a year ago that we'd be paying less than two-dollars a gallon for gas I would have said you were crazy. Yesterday, I filled up in St. Cloud for $1.90 a gallon (after a 5-cent discount). Last May we were paying more than $4.00 a gallon. That's a huge deal. Sounds like it might stay this way for a while. How low can it go?

My 2015 New Year’s Resolution

A few years ago I resolved to drink more champagne in the New Year, meaning I planned on celebrating more. Not sure if I did, but I still like that one. I'm not a big 'resolutions' guy, but I saw one this year that I'm stealing and making my own. I don't even remember where I saw it, but it's perfect. (And it's one I can stick to.)

I Watched ‘The Interview’ (And It’s Hilarious)

I'm not sure how much of what Sony has said or done is a publicity stunt, and how much is real reaction to the political climate -- but either way, it has been a PR gift from heaven as 'The Interview' has become Sony's number one online movie of all time (in just four days). I watched it last night and couldn't stop laughing.
