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.

Things We Learn In Our 40′s

I came across a story written by Pamela Druckerman in the New York Times, titled 'What You Learn In Your 40s.' It caught my attention (because someone I know is in their 40s.) I read it, laughed out loud, and realized all of her points were right on the money. Here are some of the highlights.

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.
