Finding Dory, Gender Fluidity, Also Ellen DeGeneres & Some Sexy Stats

SCREENMANCER GENDER THEORY: Okay so, Screenmancer is all about Digerati for Digerati, thus here we will present an argument for the rise of gender fluidity and why this is important in the Digital Age via Finding Dory, the Disney movie that is currently blowing away box office records for biggest June opening ever.

We can thank Ellen DeGeneres for coming out with this hit, and coming out, you know, in other ways too. (Smiley face.) There’s a running theme in here, fluidity, fish, finding ourselves, plus it all works out. Now, free your mind, forget everything you know in the offline world, jump into this digital ocean.

Remember a time when all the nurseries were pink and blue awaiting You Know Who? Before the Digital Age, just about everything was set in stone, literally, offline brick-and-mortar even. Then came the commerce wave in 1999 that blew every business up the tornado of digital innovations? Well, now we are mostly up in The Cloud we know and love today. Along the way, real offline people lost their “given” and “surnames,” came up with crazy usernames and thereby became digital presences.

But what else happened with this transition behind the screens? You guessed it, gender became either unrelated or irrelevant to the User (note that is a gender neutral noun). Carl Jung, yes, that Jung, defined a process known as individuation. In “Jungian psychology, individuation is the process of transforming one’s psyche by bringing the personal and collective unconscious into conscious,” according to mindstructures.com.

In other words, our transition into Digerati consciousness may necessitate deep personalization not just in the hardware and software, but for users to define themselves as well. Something to think about. We fine tune ourselves as users as we fine tune our consciousness as digerati. You can tune a piano, but you can also tuna fish… okay, we tried. Now for the sexy stats, they are courtesy of Graphiq, which rocks in the visual search presentation department.

Go Find Your Inner Dory, that’s the moral of this story.

Screenmancer is a gathering place for people who make movies and wild speculations.

Megan Fox – Still Super Hot, Still Swings To Teenage Mutant Turtle Music

SCREENMANCER TMNT2 ALERT: Los Angeles, CA – You know Megan Fox is still super hot, no matter what (or who) she does, and Fox is also known to swing to turtle music. That said, Paramount Records just let slip today that it will release the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS – Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on June 3rd, featuring the film’s original score by Steve Jablonsky (the “Transformers” franchise, “Pain and Gain”). The Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies film is being unleashed in theatres nationwide today. 

“The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has some of the most unique and fun characters ever created, which makes it a great canvas for music. I enjoyed the challenge of creating new musical themes for these characters,” said Jablonsky. “One of my main goals was to have fun with the music, because that’s what the Turtles are all about; they could be fighting the craziest battle ever and still be cracking jokes. But the film also has a heart and a message, about being true to who you are. Out of the Shadows is a great combination of fun, action and heart.” You Know The Story, A Shell Game

Yes, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo return to theaters this summer in “TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS” to battle bigger, bad-asser villains alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), who is actually funny. After super villain Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes custody, he joins forces with Guess-Who scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two super-dummies henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (ripped WWE Superstar “Sheamus”), to deploy a diabolical plan to take over the world, or close proximity. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing a more-twisted evil-doer with worse intentions: the notorious Krang.

Werner Herzog Opines All Things The Interwebs, “Lo and Behold…”

SCREENMANCER DIRECTOR ALERT:  Wildly creative filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Fitzcarraldo) sums up his latest digital exploration with: “It is one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing.” WernerHerzog16Thus Werzog holds forth on the past, present and absent corporeal state of the constantly evolving future of the Interwebs in Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Working with NETSCOUT, a mover in real-time service assurance and cybersecurity, which came aboard as a producer and led him into a new world, Herzog conducted original interviews with cyberspace pioneers and prophets such as PayPal and Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, Internet protocol inventor Bob Kahn, and revered hacker/pioneer Kevin Mitnick. These provocative conversatons reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very nature of how we conduct our personal relationships (read: Social Engineering, dating apps, etc.). Executive producer Jim McNiel adds, “It’s a journey even Werner, with his immense imagination and inquisitive mind, didn’t expect. Unless you have lived in the technology space, you don’t yet fully appreciate what dwells there.”
