Ken Rockwell knew this thread about him was awesome, before it was even made.

Ken Rockwell doesn't wait for the perfect lighting, the lighting waits until Ken Rockwell frames the scene.

I like Ken. Yes, sometimes he's off base but who isn't? His reviews are not bad. It's his point of view. And he supports his family with his site, something I doubt anywhere here does but I'm sure would like to. Give the guy a break. What'd he ever do to any of you?

Ken Rockwell once shot a Wedding with a brick painted like a camera. Nobody noticed and the pictures were awesome!

Nah, Ken doesn't use memory cards, because Ken never forgets anything.

If you've read any of my posts around here, I've got one of the best sense of humors around. Just look at my moniker under my avatar. I can be poked fun at and poke fun with the best of 'em.

My reply to this post was only because it seems Ken Rockwell takes so much heat from many sides, and if I feel differently, why can't I say so? Should I poke fun at him just for the heck of it? I wasn't putting anyone down. I was just stating my opinion that his site is really not that bad, his pics are pretty damn good, and his reviews, agree or not, are also well written, that's all.

No harm, no foul.

Its all in fun and yes you are indeed intitled to your opinion. My response was again a joke as is this entire thread based on the Chuck Norris as Ken Rockwell idea. Ive been LMAO at some of these replies. Hope you have been also.

Ken Rockwell is the MDJAK of reviews.


And Chuck Norris is the MDJAK of Kung Fu.

Little known fact; before Google developed the "Make Awesome" button for Picasa, it's code name was the "Ken Rockwell Button". Unfortunately they couldn't figure out how to make images that good, so they had to settle for just awesome.

Google was also baffeled that no one was using the feature until they realized nobody would dare push Ken Rockwell.
