Zeitgeist Media Fail

UPDATED Oct. 4, 2011

For those of you who know anything about The Zeitgeist Movement, I’m sure you’ve heard them annoyingly promoting their latest idea of pushing their crackpot ideas on the world “The Zeitgeist Media Festival.” The idea was to plan an event with artists and speakers and show films in order to promote the concept of the redundantly named “Resource Based Economy.” They planned to have events world wide but only funded only a few. If not a few than most definitely the one in Los Angeles, CA. The date was set on September 11, 2011 the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania (They’re not a conspiracy theory movement, by the way. Wink, wink)

Now earlier this year, many of those most vocal against TZM noticed quite the fall in support in 2011’s Z-Day as opposed to their 2010 events. While the size of the London event was significantly larger, mostly due the the fact that it was the headline event where Peter Joseph Merola, Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows were set to speak, events around the world were fewer with less people attending. It showed a significant decline in interest in the movement as a whole as even Alexa traffic ratings showed a tapering off even lower than pre-Zeitgeist: Moving Forward levels.

If the drop of interest only as marginal as the time before, this would make for a very dry blog entry. Rest assured, it only gets better considering you’re not a Zeitard.

While we expected some turn out to the 1st Annual (which is stupid, nothing is annual it’s first time) Zeitgeist Media Festival, I personally was shocked at the level of failure of this event. Merola spent a lot of time organizing and promoting this and as little information as we’ve been able to gather, around only 100 people (which is a liberal estimate) attended the main event in Los Angeles. New York was as dismal, as the only pictures we could find purposely avoided the crowd. London was a joke with probably around 20-30 people attending. Germany was hardly a media anything, but rather a 10 person picnic.

As of September 12th, 9:45 PM CDT there is currently NO coverage mentioned on Google News. I mean NONE. No mainstream or fringe media. Not even the almighty RussiaToday which pimps their garbage gave a shit. I can’t find any blogs covering the events aside from James Kush outlining it’s failure to attract anyone. This alone is pathetic, but could it get worse? Well, when asking this question about The Zeitgeist Movement, the answer is usually always YES!

The Official TZMF Thread on the Official TZM Fourms had NO coverage aside from asking where to view it on the internet. V-Radio has made NO mention of it. The Zeitgeist Los Angeles Chapter makes NO mention of it after the announcement as the same for the whole State of California, Sacremento, New York or even United Kingdom or London! In fact as I browse around looking for something to show as an exception on this blog, I simply can not find a single Zeitgeist blog, chapter, or forum talking about this damn thing. It is as if this event never even came to pass.

Correct me if I am wrong, dear Zeitgeisters, but wasn’t the point to reach critical mass? How does one get negative interest in offering people free shit for sitting around doing nothing that doesn’t involve some kind of get rich scheme? I think I might have the answer. The fact that Peter Joseph Merola called it The Zeitgeist Movement after the first batshit crazy conspiracy theory film and people are waking up to the fact that they were just hanging out with nutjobs. There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t get some message on Twitter or my YouTube Channel accusing me of being a government agent. In fact, Peter Joseph himself has accused those who criticize The Zeitgeist Movement regularly as being paid by a “reputation company” to do this. Let me state, that as of yet I have never been paid one cent by anyone to do what I do. However if there are those interested, contact me and I will leave you my PayPal address.

Joking aside, The Zeitgeist Movement is dead and The Zeitgeist Movement killed it. Their ass-hattery and paranoid delusional fantasies have scared everyone with more than 2 brain cells away. I really don’t see a point on paying too much attention to them anymore, so I think this will be one of the last things I’ll put effort into as far as criticizing them goes. I might tweet or post something if they do something exceptionally fail again but, for the most part there’s bigger fish to fry.

For now, I’ll leave you a fitting song for TZM. We hardly knew ye.

Well we got more proof now that the LA show was a disaster. A Zeitard by the name of voiceofreason467 tried to disprove this by providing proof there was only 70 people. Ignore the mumbley commentary and enjoy.

  • As another unpaid critic, this must have been the event that I heard had been cancelled in the UK, or was it some other event that was cancelled..

    I’m not sure, as when I went back to the forum to check, the message about something being cancelled wasn’t there anymore.

    And no one on their TeamSpeak server knew what was happening, or what wasn’t happening.

    All a bit disorganised if you ask me..

    This will all be fixed in the next version won’t it, what’s it called, Phoenix or something..

    Will the last person rememebr to turn out the light..
