  • 1/2 Hour of Hell (from the RV)

    in Sports

    Goddamn, Utah! I really need to stop betting. Also, laying fake tile in the RV should be out-sourced, being that I suck at it. Kind of a boring week in college football, right? No matter. Wild beat down Anaheim, and it gives us more time to discuss the NFL. Done and done. Seattle looked good (albiet, against the terrible 49ers).. The J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS ,JETS visit the Patriots in the only game that features winning records. Should be a good one with Revis, a Super Bowl Champ with the Pats last year, back where he started in New York, with the #1 rated "D", giving Brady a hard time.. Vikes need a road win in Detroit to be taken seriously, Cam & the Panthers chance to get Chip Kelly fired, and being that I'm on my 3rd string QB in Fantasy Football, I painfully cheer for Kirk Cousins.

    What to do with a BFA: How Nawal Motawi Created a Robust Ceramic Tile Studio

    in Art

    Nawal Motawi joins us to talk about her journey from art school graduate to founder of an award-winning Ann Arbor-based nationally known art studio that creates unique handmade tile reflecting the classic styles and craftsmanship of 20th Century American design.

    Nawal Motawi founded Motawi Tileworks more than 20 years ago. A University of Michigan art school graduate with a restless spirit and an interest in applied arts, she moved to Detroit to learn tilemaking at Detroit’s storied Pewabic Pottery. She returned to Ann Arbor after a few years and began making her own tiles in a garage studio and selling them from a stand she rented at the local farmers’ market. Today, Nawal is still designing and making tiles in Ann Arbor. Her companies, Motawi Tileworks and Rovin Ceramics, employ more than 30 people. The tiles are sold in over 400 stores across the United States.

    The Motawi business philosophy:

    We make distinctive ceramics in a healthy way. We share our story. And we have fun.


    We believe that we can make the world a better place by making beautiful things for everyday places and modeling healthy company practices.

    How do we do this?

    We make things that are valued for their design and quality.

    We cultivate an intentional workplace culture that fosters constant improvement, positivity and consistently high performance.

    Listen to learn how she made the move from her first art classes to a successful business owner, plus her best tips for building a sustainable career in the arts.

    Good morning, all you crazies out there in Hammerhead land!!!! We are so very happy you have decided to join us on this fine Thursday morning. That means, we are one day closer to the weekend, and par-tay!!!

    I am Executive Producer, Ellen Johnson, and if you remember yesterday, I had a mischievious streak, a mile long, going on all through the show; well, that streak has gotten even longer, and more intense, and DO I HAVE SOME THINGS PLANNED....

    Yes, I have something planned for Hammer, and if you think you can out-last him in his own house, you are more than welcome---in fact I encourage you---to come into the studio, and take him on. The number is 646-595-3032; and if you can last, you will get one of our Hammer 96.7 Angel of Darkness mugs. We will also touch on trending news, celebrity gossip, music news; and maybe Hammer will once again make a random call---or three.

    As always, thank you to our wonderful sponsors, the Williams Law Group LLC and by Loretta's Authentic Pralines---home of the world-famous sweet potato cookie.

Ron, a Pathologist, and Victoria, a Ceramic Artist, developed the evolutionary Vistar Method ™, a structured meeting format for collective awakening, co-creativity and conscious communication.  They have 30 years experience with intensive spiritual group work and train Vistar Circle Leaders.

    This evening’s Round Table discussion will be on the subject of “conscious co-creation”, a fancy name for how we can advance human evolution sufficiently quickly enough to avoid the much-discussed 6th Extinction even though signs of it are already in our midst, what with Climate Change, radical speed of species going extinct daily, icecaps melting, natural catastrophes occurring world-wide and economic and political systems so corrupt and disparate numerous economists believe that these systems are already in collapse.
