News Story  June 3, 2011, by Michael King
"...When it comes to parks, which are incredibly important to neighborhoods but also to people who aren't necessarily associated with the neighborhood association, whether it's Downtown or whether it's in surrounding areas, I've been a really important force on improving park maintenance citywide, partnering with nonprofits so that the department could do more than they've done before; whether it's increasing our tree canopy, whether it's the partnership with the YMCA, whether it's the partnership with [the West Austin Youth Association]...."

During the Q&A, Jones confirmed some old rumor of Warhol-involvement/influence, evident throughout in the film's saturated colors and especially in the totally nuts "YMCA" montage gym sequence, liberally ripped from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and owing a lot more to Busby Berkeley – save for the blink-and-you'll-miss-it male frontal nudity or Valerie Perrine's magnificent breasts. I regret saving my Q for the CD-signing line..."
