Bruce Lee turns 70 today, The Singapore Bruce Lee, Bruce Lee statue may be erected in L.A.’s Chinatown

Bruce Lee was just 32 when he died in 1973. He would have been 70. What I liked most about ol’ Brucee was that instead of complaining about racism in Hollywood, he did his own thing. For example instead of complaining about Charlie Chan or, if it was today, Avatar, he was too busy making his own films. One my fav quotes which is also in NEAATO’s ‘about’ section: ”To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”

Wish I got to be in the “I sound like Bruce Lee” competition below. Would have loved to do my impersonation of him saying “Beeeee like waaaaaaataaaaar” hehe

ENTER THE DRAGON: A Chinatown committee is looking to raise a statue commemorating martial arts icon Bruce Lee, who historians say once lived in a studio in the neighborhood. “Once we get a final decision from the committee regarding the location, the Community Redevelopment Agency will help them go through the city process to make it happen,” Bibiana Yung, assistant project manager at the CRA, told the Downtown Los Angeles News.

Singapore’s Bruce Lee

“FROM his simple white T-shirt, and black track pants down to his Kung Fu shoes and white socks, 31-year-old IT sales manager Thomas Hay certainly got his idol Bruce Lee’s iconic look right. And he has the moves to boot.

The Taekwondo-trained Hay won a Bruce Lee look-alike contest held at The Heeren Shops last Saturday with his martial arts performance based on a fight scene in Bruce Lee’s movie, Fist of Fury.”

About neaat

The NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT ORG is an independent site for information on Asian American Arts, Talent, Culture, and Entertainment. NEAATO started as a myspace page under http://www.myspace.com/asianamericannetwork and also a blog in 2007 (http://www.neaat.wordpress.com/) by Donnytello Tran. The idea was made when we noticed our friends on Myspace were posting more information about their work online through bulletins instead of waiting to get published in magazines or an Asian American Blog. We decided to put all these ‘posts’ together and share it with anyone that was interested and NEAATO was born. The current NEAATO blog site is http://www.neaato.com/. NEAATO was inspired by Bruce Lee’s quote: “"To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”
