The transcript below is from the video “Why I Still Love Bruce Lee – After All These Years” by THE LOCH.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

Why I love Bruce Lee – Even though my whole life Bruce Lee has not been alive I’ve always found him awe-inspiring, everything from his philosophies on life, his screen presence, athletic ability and of course his mastery of martial arts and his creating of Jeet Kune do.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia): 

“Hi there, just practicing me Jeet Kune Do.  Let’s talk about Bruce Lee!  One of the earliest knowledge I’ve got of Bruce Lee was actually watching this great film, The Man, The Myth.  It’s actually a pretty good biopic really.  It’s pretty bang on for the most part and I never even realized until about six or seven years afterwards that it was actually Bruce Lai starring in it, not actually Bruce Lee.  That’s what an idiot I was at school.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia): 

There’s a great part at the end of the film where he said he’d actually faked his own death and he would return in 1983, 10 years after he passed.  I talked about being at school.  I was always hoping that he would actually come back like he did in No Retreat No Surrender that actually teach me Kung Fu.  So, I was getting picked on by the boys at school and got the shock of their life when they realized I was like some kind of martial arts expert and I could beat them up, and attack them and stuff.

It’s not really the foundations of martial arts but there you go.  Yeah, talk about kids at school though.  There are all these conspiracy theories about what he was doing and if he was still alive or not.”

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia): 

(Three students at school talking about Bruce Lee and conspiracy theories)

First person:

“You know Bruce Lee’s not really dead don’t you?  Yes, it’s in a book.  What he did was he faked his own death so he could work undercover for the Hong Kong police infiltrating drug gangs in the Triads.”

Second person: 

“Yeah, I reckon that’s true.”

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

Actually, think about it.  The kids at school might have had a point about Bruce Lee faking his own death because if he isn’t dead, how come he’s got a verified Twitter account and an Instagram account?  Explain it to me!  Explain it to me, America!  One of my all-time favorite things to do with Bruce Lee was the Bruce Lee computer game for most of the 88-bit formats.  You can see footage of it now, it doesn’t particularly look like much.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

It is what it is, but at the time it nearly felt like being Bruce Lee.  You could fight ninjas and you could fight a green Yamo, whatever one of those was and you got to collect these little lanterns.  Got some great old-school artwork there, actual painting and one I that I always used to think was… it always makes me a bit sad when I read it.  In the instructions it says, “At 40,000 points (and every 30,000 points after that), you get an extra Bruce Lee.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

Wouldn’t that be great in real-life because you get an extra Bruce Lee just by getting some points, whatever that means?  Probably said this a few times but growing up in the 80s, loads of films were ruined by the BBFC for being edited; two years to see Enter the Dragon in all its uncut glory.  I’ve got a weird memory of seeing it on the BBC once and the shot of a plane taking off in the intro.  I had a really beautiful sky and I’ve never seen it on any version before or since.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

I guess it’s that Mandela Effect, right?  All these scenes being caught especially the scenes with the nunchucks…  I don’t know what James Milton was actually thinking.  Do you think it was going to be something like nunchucks massacre or something?  But what you do find though is if you’ve ever used nunchucks, here’s a pro tip.  If you use them for more than five seconds, all you do is you either hit yourself in the head or hit yourself in the nuts.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

Luckily, now we live in a more enlightened time period and the BBFC pretty much let anything through nowadays.  If you look at some of the filth flung filth that’s on Netflix, you’ll see that rings true.  But you think Bruce Lee died in the 70s, it makes you think if he hadn’t survived until like the late 80’s, the 90s or even now, I think he’d be 70-something and what kind of film Bruce Lee would be making.  Well, wonder no more because me and Jain Lee discussed this topic on the radio.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

“It makes myself think though if he was alive…”

Iain Lee (talkRADIO, Host of The Late Night Alternative):

“Yeah.”

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

“…what kind of crazy films would he be making now because I’m always a little bit gutted that he didn’t ever make a film with like a talking dog or something, because that’s like…”

Iain Lee (talkRADIO, Host of The Late Night Alternative):

(Laughter)  “That’s a good [indiscernible] [04:55] because I’ve often thought, well, what kind of films would he make in the 80s and stuff?  But yeah, Bruce with a talking dog – that would be awesome man!  That’s exactly what I want to see!”

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

“Anyway, let’s see if anybody’s left me any comments on the comment lever.”

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

 Oh, it’s a lovely day.  I thought that I’d come outside, bring a good book to read and a good craft of beer.  I can’t wait to have a look and sit on the bank all day.  Some good quotes in that book and we’ll talk about good quotes.  Let’s get the comment lever on the go!  There’s some good photographs in there as well and a good archive of Bruce Lee’s career.  Here’s the first comment, it’s from c p.  It says, “LOOOOSER

Loser!  You’re a loser!  Are you feeling sorry for yourself?  Well, you should be because you are dirt!

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

You could have put that to me a bit more gently.  Well, we should go for another comment.  Alright, pretty good Bruce Lee video called A Warrior’s Journey – some great interviews and all the deleted scenes in The Game of Death.  Here’s a comment from Matt Hopper.  Is he the character from Jaws?  It says, “This guy is, like, a total aesthete.”  You take that back!  Actually, I’ll just check what it means.  Oh, I didn’t realize you meant that.  Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

THE LOCH (David Pickerill A.K.A. Bronson Lee, UK, Cinema & Video Game nostalgia):

I can’t believe it’s been nearly 10 years since I went to see Enter the Dragon at the cinema.  Let’s get one final comment.  [Indiscernible] [06:46-48].  You’ve reached your final destination which lets us just past the entrance but when we do pop car out, [indiscernible] [06:54].  Here’s the last comment, it’s from philspeedway1.  If he was spying the speedway ground…  It says, “Love watching your videos mate being a fellow stokie myself.  It’s great to see you filming around the area.  Any chance of doing a video of you gaming history or collection?”

That’s not actually a bad idea for the video and I think only reularly I’ve played about six games.  So, it’d be perfect.  Yeah, that’s one!  Thanks for the comment.  [indiscernible] [07:22-26] and keep it locked!
