Video of a mexican TV program, called in-d; don't know the exact date, but I assume it's from may 18-22:

http://a30.video2.bl...IndEp181181.mp4

Omar's talking about Xenophanes out in september, like we all know. He recorded the first part of it in New York, while mixing Octahedron, and finished it in Guadalajara, where he lives since november (2008). The line up we know for this album is correct; Mark Aanderud is from México, D.F. -I don't know if that have been posted before-.
He also said that he made an album with Ximena and other guy named Aaron Cruz (basist from D.F.) like in february. This album is totally acoustic; it is a Trío, with an acoustic guitar, contrabass and Ximena on vocals. "It was fun making this album, because Ximena wrote all the lyrics and melodies; I only had to make the music and produce." They made this album in two days. There's not a release date for this album.
He mentions that since they came to the Vive Latino -I think he meant Coca-Cola Zero Fest- in april (2008), he loves Guadalajara, and say to Cedric: "hey, I'm gonna live here one day, so tell me if you like the place, 'cause you will have to come here very often so we can work together." Cedric comes every week to visit him.
For him, there's no much differences between Mars Volta albums and his solo projects, like Xenophanes; only that he sings instead of Cedric.



And, there is this interview on a program, called "Buenos Días, Santa Fe", Ibero 90.9 FM:

http://www.mediafire...php?mxnm45mmjmk

After he mention how Xenophanes was made -you can clearly hear him and the interviewer say zenoPHAnes several times, for those who want to know how to say it-, Omar choose a song from the album to be played, and we can hear in the background "Mundo de Ciegos". (It sounds good.)
Omar explains why he named the album "Xenophanes": "Xenophanes is a crater on the moon, and is connected with another crater called Volta. Also, Xenophanes was a greek philosopher, who said that men will never reach the truth, because it has too many faces." He liked the word even before knowing its meaning.
Again, he tell us Octahedron is named like that because they liked the name very much, and then they found the coincidences between number 8 and the band (8 years of been The Mars Volta, 8 members, 8 tracks on Octahedron).
He has no social life at all, by the way; that's why he's always creating music. He don't care about fans opinions. When he was a child, he lived in Puebla, México, with his family, while his father was studying medicine.
Finally, he recommend some movies, and choose another song to be played, "track number 5, please", he says. I can't really hear the name, and I don't know the song, but I liked it a lot.

Well, something like that. Just hear/watch the interviews. Viva México.

For now you could just right click + save as...

And use total video converter to cut a part of the video where the song is played, but ripping like that always ruins the quality a little

No, that would be Mundo Ciego

Mundo de Ciegos is referring to people.



Lol the interviewer asks if Octahedron is connected to Frances the Mute because of all the ouija board stuff

When they ask Omar to play a song at the end Omar says "number 5 please" and he says the song is "???? 2.0" and he explains he has so much songs that he often uses names from other songs. The tracklist says the song is something like "Like water between my fingers" (Como agua entre mis dedos)... then the interviewer says it sounds like Jane's Addiction.

Sooooooo which album has Victimas del Cielo, Locomocion Capilar, ect? Because I don't see Omar singing something like that and those songs aren't acoustic in any way. Is there a third album to be released soon?
