Zeitgeist: Addendum, a 2008 documentary film produced by Peter Joseph, is a continuation of the film Zeitgeist, the Movie. The film relates the corruptive nature of the Federal Reserve System in the United States, the CIA henchman for corporate America and others, concluding with the advocating of the Venus Project, created by social engineer Jacque Fresco. The movie premiered at the 5th Annual Artivist Film Festival in Los Angeles, California on October 2, 2008, and was released free online on October 4, 2008.According to director Peter Joseph, the film "attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution". In conclusion, Addendum stresses the need for belief systems to embrace the ideas of emergence and interdependence and outlines concrete steps that can be taken to weaken the monetary system.

In contrast with the first Zeitgeist, The Movie, Addendum caused some stir as the makers lay out a vision to strive for, which is as it should be, only the ideas portrayed didnt go down to well with some smallminded egomaniacs..unsurprisingly i might add. The FACT that there's plenty of renewable (almost free) energy around has been kept from the world for decades, and im not talking about zeropoint energy but solar, wind, geothermic there is plenty but it cant be controlled like energy has been and there lies the opposition..the controllers...Now machines have been getting a bad rap as these have been used in this world to keep the workforce down, but machines have no ego and these can do almost anything in providing humans with food, building shelter provinding healthcare.. The idea being if everyone is provided for the drive to commit crime and corrupt and wage war is taken away...and humans can concentrate on expressing themselves...obviously these ideas sound very dangerous to the ego driven competitors so you'll here them shout communism which it aint, its closer to libertarianism, its about all men have equal rights, it's about money don't matter.



Zeitgeist Addendum I (AVI 81mb)

Zeitgeist: Addendum is separated into four parts. The first part criticizes the practice of the Fractional Reserve Banking system. And in a very simplistic way the film tries to convey how the Federal Reserve creates money, and what each dollar bill represents --that is, debt. The film goes on to present a case for how the Fed loans this newly created "debt money" to the U.S.treasury in exchange for bonds. In sequence, the money received from the Fed ends up as deposits in commercial banks, which through the fractional reserve system is multiplied and turned into interest baring loans. The film comments how "absurd" such a system is, since the interest that must be paid for the bonds can only create a perpetual cycle of debt

Zeitgeist Addendum II (AVI 85mb)

The second part is a documentary style interview with John Perkins, in which he describes his role as a Economic Hitman (EHM). He helped CIA and the ruling political/corporate elites who have worked to undermine legitimate foreign regimes who put the interests of their populations before those of transnational corporations

Zeitgeist Addendum III (AVI 112mb)

The third part describes the Venus Project, a proposal created by Jacque Fresco. The film promotes the Venus Project as a sustainable solution for mankind on earth. Its main goal is to produce a "resource-based economy" using modern technology.


Zeitgeist Addendum IV (AVI 126mb)

Part IV states that everything wrong with the world is "fundamentally the result of a collective ignorance of two of the most basic insights humans can have about reality - the 'emergent' and 'symbiotic' aspects of natural law." The film then suggests actions for "social transformation", such as boycotts of large banks, the mainstream media, the military, and energy companies, rejecting the political structure and "creating critical mass".

Second here is Format Factory, extremely useful transcoding video and audio files, allthough the high-quality sound settings are not (128)

Whether you haven’t heard of this particular file format that you have on your desktop or you haven’t got the appropriate tools on your system, Format Factory is what we recommend trying out, it’s a freeware and probably the last file conversion tool you will ever need to search for! Format Factory currently handles 12 types of video formats, six audio types, eight image formats and DVD/ISO conversions.

As you can see, it doesn’t look difficult to use, in fact quite simple, although spiked with format-icons and a big banner announcing the program’s name for no reason other than to put lipstick on the pig. The left navigation menu has collapsible links to the various formats you can convert to, based on type: video, audio, image, mobile device, and ROM device. Below the massive title banner, the central pane sports decorative icons until you start the conversion process.Once you’ve selected your files, you can change the output quality to presets or custom settings. Hit Start on the Toolbar of the main window to begin the process, which is surprisingly fast for smaller video files. FormatFactory excels at batch conversion without error. It does, however, eat up much of your processor while it’s running even one conversion, and for some reason considers 128k high quality..which makes it rather unsuitable for me, however my advice convert to wave and from there use the conversion tools and quality you want, my oggdroptool goes to 512k and plenty of lame/mp3 converters around like the lamedrop i include here.

This here is the latest version of Format Factory 1.55



Key features:
· All to MPG/AVI/3GP/FLV/MP4.
· All to MP3/OGG/WMA/M4A/WAV.

Finally two extremely useful coding progs, and the lame/oggdrop neednt be installed at all these work right away, Lamedrop even recodes my oggfiles directly to MP3..That said you'd be surprised how many MP3 players play Ogg even if its rarely listed....you should try

oggdropXPd

oggdropXPd is a drag-and-drop Ogg Vorbis encoder/decoder/player for the eXPerienced user. Features include compression from lossless files (Monkeys Audio, LPAC, FLAC, WAVPACK and OptimFROG -(check rarewares.org for needed dll's), auto-tagging, renaming of encoded files, setting of advanced encoder parameters, use of VorbisGain tags on decode, playlist (.m3u) creation, and others.

Playback also supports multi-channel in the same way. A further option is added to downmix multi-channel to stereo for decoding to file, or playback. The multi-channel mapping conforms to the Vorbis I Specification.


LameDropXPd

LameDropXPd is a practical frontend for LAME that makes things easier to the user, as there is no need to know about command line usage: most LAME settings are reachable on a graphical interface. Besides encoding WAV files to MP3, it can transcode Ogg Vorbis files, decode MP3 files to WAV, and auto-tag the files it encodes.

Tuu - All Our Ancesters (94 ^ 99mb)

Deep, ancient atmospheres. A rich combination of the exotic and the electronic. A mystical, magical travelogue exploring old, hidden dimensions. Tuu are Martin Franklin on water drums, clay pots, tibetan bells and gongs, Rebecca Lublinski on flutes, and Mykl O'Dempsey with synths and samples. The result is a music that is dark and strangely unsettling, generally rhythmic but never funky, slow but never heavy. This is a good disc to listen to focus your attention within and reach out to the world around you. It is extremely peaceful, relaxing and not in the least bit boring since the exotic nature of the instruments holds your attention quite well. This music shadows the distant past, the unknown future and the mystery of life. This here is one of the originally released  limited edition of 500 with a hand-made metal and paper slipcase



1 - Shiva Descending (8:56)
2 - All Our Ancestors (7:36)
3 - House Of The Waters (4:42)
4 - Stillpoint In Motion (5:24)
5 - Rainfall (7:56)
6 - Illumination (4:28)
7 - Triple Gem Of Wisdom (8:02)
