Interestingly you mention Gina Nemo.
She formed her first band called
"22 Nemo" in the early 90's and they played in various Hollywood locations.
Her first album was produced for an indie label based in Buffalo, New York in 1995, but it was never released.
Eventually she released the album "Plastic Wonderland" on her own label called Omen Records in 1999. Many of the songs from that album were placed on MGM promotional DVD's for the show Stargate and indie films.

"Plastic Wonderland" and Omen records ?
Winter Wonderland omen?

The movie " Finding Nemo" is about a clown fish (Joker?) and the plot is -
"After his son is captured in the Great Barrier Reef and taken to Sydney, a timid clownfish sets out on a journey to bring him home."
So the movie is set off the east coast of Australia (Oz) and is a journey to Oz in a way.

Getting back to Gina Nemo,she played Dorothy in "21 Jump Street".
Disney are releasing an "Oz" movie starring Heath Leger's partner Michelle Williams,mother of Heath's daughter Matilda.
Destiny's Child made a reunion at the halftime Superbowl show and one of the singer's of the band is named Michelle Williams also.
Plus there was a player in the Baltimore Ravens named Williams (63).
And the east coast of Australia is still recovering from cyclone Oswald hitting it on the Australia Day weekend.

"The City of the Pyramids is the home to those adepts that have crossed the great Abyss, having spilled all their blood in the Graal of Babalon. They have destroyed their earthly ego-identities, becoming nothing more than piles of dust (i.e. the remaining aspects of their True Selves without the self-sense of "I"). Within, they take on the name or title of Saint or Nemo (Latin for No-Man)."

omen - definition of omen by the Free Online Dictionary ...
o·men (m n) n. 1. A phenomenon supposed to portend good or evil; a prophetic sign. 2. Prognostication; portent: birds of ill omen. tr.v. o·mened, o·men·ing, o·mens -

from wiki:

An omen (also called portent or presage) is a phenomenon that is believed to foretell the future, often signifying the advent of change.[1] Though the word "omen" is usually devoid of reference to the change's nature, hence being possibly either "good" or "bad," the term is more often used in a foreboding sense, as with the word "ominous". The origin of the word is unknown, although it may be connected with the Latin word audire, meaning "to hear."[

online Etymology Dictionary:
omen (n.) 1580s, from Latin omen "foreboding," from Old Latin osmen, of unknown origin; perhaps connected with the root of audire "to hear" [OED] or from PIE *o- "to believe, hold as true" (cf. Greek oiomai "I suppose, think, believe").

The overlapping events of the Dorner shootings and winter storm Nemo share a common theme: Dorner claims to be trying to recover his name, and Nemo means "nobody." It has been noted that "Nemo" is a backward anagram of "omen," and the name of the Anti-Christ in the Omen films is Damien Thorn. An anagram of "Damien Thorn" is "another mind," and it appears that Dorner, who earlier in his life seems to have been a nice guy (He even turned in to the police $8000 he found in the street before beginning his career in law enforcement.), transformed mentally. Dorner mentions in his manifesto that he received at least two concussions while playing football, so brain injury cannot be ruled out as a contributing factor to his transformation.
