The Future of E82 ? ? ?

"Well, I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my life. MONEY. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true. From the very start it was a problem. Getting the money to open Disneyland. About seventeen million it took. And we had everything mortgaged including my personal insurance." – Walt Disney

In much the same way, E82 has always been on the verge of closure and it currently “loses” about $300.00 in hosting fees per year (a cost that, believe it or not, cuts deep into my current finances).

But more valuable than money is the Time invested into revitalizing EPCOT Centered concepts – time that’s often “stolen” from higher priorities like education, health, socialization, and artistic/career development (ironically all Epcot values).

E82 is a labor of love, the definition of a Passion Project and it is one that I hope will continue for a long time. And once my education is no longer such a large factor of my “free” time I fully expect that the Legacy will continue at a faster pace. However, I cannot ignore the hard facts that without any measurable incentive E82’s development will always be excruciatingly slow.

If you enjoy E82 and support the dual causes of “Appreciation through Exposure” (History & Music) and would like to see Epcot (the park) continue to be positively effected through the process of “Influence through Inspiration” (Art & Legacy) Please Support E82 by Making a Donation!

To all the guys out there who enjoy the by now quite numerous FWSS publications: Just consider the normal price you would usually pay for a music CD (most of the FWSS editions are double CDs on top)! Don't you think Joshua's work is worth a few bucks?

I was thinking about a way to contribute to these extraordinary pieces of fine artwork both in music and graphics when the notice of donating via paypal came up on the E82 web site. I live in Germany, so this was an easy way to support Joshua from the other end of the world. Modern networks not just make it easy to download these great compilations to enjoy them at home and keep me dreaming of EPCOT and immerse in memories of the few times I had the opportunity to visit this fantastic place but to send money straight the other way as well!

Let's help to keep this fantastic corner of the net alive and enjoy what Joshua still has up his sleeve in months and - hopefully - years to come.

Thanks and cheers to everyone and especially to Joshua,

For a kid who was blown away by EPCOT Center during his first visit in 1984, this site and its content are beyond amazing. If everyone reading this donated at least ten bucks, there would be no problem funding this incredible project. I'm happy to contribute, and will continue doing so to the best of my ability.

Thanks for everything, Joshua. Your hard work and dedication is appreciated more than you'll ever know.
