Construction Notification 

Hi Everyone! 

Remember Me???

I’m the guy that’s supposed to be maintaining this site. 

Well, I’m in the midst of the last month and a half of my formal education and (as you can imagine) things are coming quick and fast on all sides, and most absurdly the least of these pressures is coming from my final classes!

However, while assembling my portfolio, building a separate “JLH Omnimedia” site and tending to the life-altering launch of MyMagic+, my thoughts drift back to the plethora of exciting projects yet to come for the Epcot Legacy. Including entirely new sections, columns and some highly-secretive endeavors that will change forever your perception of Epcot, and all theme parks as a whole!

But, before all this work continues, the fruits of Full Sail have provided me with more professional standards of content delivery and (mostly significantly) rules on what NOT to do with a website. Therefore, I’m in process of migrating all of my nearly 30 desktops backgrounds to the site directly with no need to navigate through 5 Clicks just to get to your favorite wallpaper. Once completed you’ll be able to directly download everything in the art section with just one click!

But that’s not all.
(As many of you know) I have a rare artistic disease I call…

“Lucasicitis”: an uncontrollable urge to enhance or perfect one’s past works.

As part of this illness, I’ve also been reassessing some pieces making a couple hundred minor corrections, with the most notable occurring with the Vista Series so that they can be used together (and continue) without any loss of consistency for several projects down the line.

Over the next few weeks,
I’ll be rebuilding the ART gallery for
E82’s Direct Download service,
to include TWO new formats,
and multiple other enhancements. 

Please pardon any formatting inconsistencies,
or dead links during this process. 

Once completed expect a more pleasant visit to E82 — The Epcot Legacy!

Easy Living

“Easy Living… It’s always been just around the corner.”
The future as seen from the 1930’s, this second edition to the Texture Series pays tribute to the fanciful “Art Deco” scene from Future World’s dearly departed Horizons pavilion by focusing on the tableau’s colorful custom created carpets.

Adult Discourse

What does it mean to be a truly unique theme park in an otherwise oversaturated market of child-focused entertainment — the challenges of word association, and the enormous marketing potential that lies dormant in the world’s first theme park created for adults.

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!
