MDA Around the Bay

Today the postman delivered the Spring 2009 newsletter from Muscular Dystrophy Association, an organization that The Shooting Gallery has supported for several years. We were happy to read that the Fourth Annual Bash for Augie’s Quest raised over 600k, thanks to the help of Sara Bareilles and Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell. MDA hosts a full calendar of Bay Area events yearround, including the Outback Gold Tournament, Franchise Owners of America Golf Tournament, and Stars of San Francisco at The Fairmont Hotel. Check ou the MDA site for ways to get involved or donate.

Jailbreak x Ron English

Ron English has been getting a lot of attention following the release of his documentary film, Abraham Obama. Good thing he’s still got some tricks up his sleeve, making every interview unique and equally hilarious. Jailbreak just chatted with Ron about the origins of street art and Obama’s competency, finishing off with the definition of “popaganda.”

“We probably thought we had as much of a chance of making money off street art as we did making a living off doing bong hits. It was just something fun that we liked to do and then it kind of evolved into something else.” -read the full interview at Jailbreak
