Bruce Lee Estate Thread

Personally, I'd pin the blame on the climate of greed and toxicity from the BL estate, which has clearly rubbed off on more than a few folks within the fanbase.

It seems a lot of these historians, if you want to call them that, with picture books out, are frustrated their "rare" pics end up online anyway.

They don't owe a copyright over those pics. Neither does the BL estate for that matter. If they wanna make a profit out of then hey, that's their problem, but they shouldn't expect the fanbase to just blindly buy that stuff up in a heartbeat.

@Phantom Dreamer I just saw LJF's announcement on the Green Bamboo forums, and it's pitiful, to say the least. He should've known better that his hobby was just that, a hobby. Recognition would've been far from between and the only reward would've come in the way of greater satisfaction and knowledge among the BL crowd at large.

Anyone ever listened to Shannon's Bruce Lee Podcast on Nerdist? Personally I would rather stick my dick in a pulsating hornets nest, but just wondered if anyone had checked it out.

You're not interested in hearing Bryce Young talk about Bruce Lee's "philosophy"?

This is a bad joke, Shannon & co.

“This was one of those ideas that just worked on every level. What better way to launch a bold, disruptive brand focused on helping people master their energy, than with the ultimate master of control - Boost Lee. We’ve had a huge amount of fun working with the team at Boost and the Bruce Lee Estate to create this campaign and character. We can’t wait for the world to meet him too.”

1987 Miller Lite ad starring "Bruce" Piscopo. Obviously, this type of advertisment wouldn't fly today for a multitude of reasons.

Imagine if the estate was as litigious in 1987 as it has been the past 15-20 years?

I think they would help a lot more people and do so much more good if they presented Bruce Lee as the flawed human being he was rather than the fake superman they have marketed dry. Unfortunately that hasn't been their focus or strategy.

BREAKTHROUGH VANS CLASSIC SLIP-ON SNEAKERS
 
Breakthrough - In life we all face difficult challenges.  Bruce Lee was no exception. Time after time, Bruce overcame obstacles and barriers that stood in his way.  We hope that Bruce’s life example inspires you to breakthrough and overcome the obstacles and challenges that you face. “Defeat is a state of mind.  No one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.”  -Bruce Lee 

Sales spiel for the latest over priced Bruce Lee inpspired footwear, that according to the makers of the product, took them two years to make. There not cheap either, Mr Lee was a hero to many people, espcially for the working class and repressed and hard done to people of the world. While these shoes are clearly aimed at those with money to burn.

Click on the link below, for those interested in the new designs.

Two years!? Are you f***ing kidding me... These designs are truly awful at least in my opinion. Just a general question what else is the Lee family/estate doing besides "milking the cow"?

I have to agree with you, but I'm biased, because Bruce Lee shoes are not something I'd spend my money on. Even if I thought the designs were really cool.
