Pcad - The Ken Rockwell of Bicycles
 
If you're a photographer you know what I'm talking about....

MegaTom 01-12-11 06:54 PM

I'm not a photographer, but I know who Ken Rockwell is, and your comparison doesn't fit.

Ken Rockwell gets paid to do what he does.

Pcad is just a geezer passing the time.





--edit--

And I mean 'geezer' in the most polite and complementary way possible. :innocent:

Makel 01-12-11 06:59 PM

When he sees this how many times will he respond to his own posts? I think three for a total of four.

Accordion 01-12-11 07:02 PM

Pcad doesn't ride his bike. He sits on it and the Earth revolves under him.

I think you (the op) are in love with pcad

Yes. Yes, you may have something there.

I see the simularities. Ken Rockwell claims that he buys all of stuff that he reviews.

keisatsu 01-12-11 07:24 PM

I'm a photographer and I have no idea who Ken Rockwell is, until now...

So by comparing Ken Rockwell and Pcad are you saying Pcads website blows and he turns the saturation waaaay up on all his photographs?

bikerjp 01-12-11 07:26 PM

KR is a DB and his website sucks. If he didn't post pics of himself I'd swear he was 12.

This forum could use some of the Ken Rockwell logic:

The equipment is far less important than the skills of the user.

There are equipment junkies and then there are photographers / cyclists.

The older stuff is often better.

The cost of the gear doesn't correlate with the end product.

You should use equipment a little before you recommend or trash it.

etc. etc.

I'm his sock.

If you google "Ken Rockwell is an idiot" it provides some amusing results. I shall now try it subsituting Pcad for Ken Rockwell.

patentcad 01-12-11 09:18 PM

I Googled Pcad is an Idiot and came up with this gem.

Oh man, that's a low blow.

EDIT - Wait, THIS was my 2000th post? Dammit, I was hoping for something a little more epic.

I can take it.

Actually, it only enhances my Self-Loathing.

That thread had a great premise, a promising start, then morphed into Dallas Cowboys (gag) talk by the end. Still, I gave the thread an 8.75.

I have wondered if Ken Rockwell is on Nikon's payroll because he loves everything Nikon. I am a Nikon guy too but there is nothing wrong with Canon, Pentax, etc.

KiddSisko 01-12-11 10:33 PM

When I Yahoo'd Pcad is an idiot, I came up with this.

And this. (note the farked up spelling in the title)

guadzilla 01-12-11 10:33 PM

Rockwell takes the "it is the photographer, not the camera" mantra a little too far. And he's a pretentious prat.

Our Pope, OTOH, is good craic.

KiddSisko 01-12-11 10:38 PM

BTW, the title of this thread makes little sense on many levels. Pcad is more like the Derk Dorf of cycling.

I read Ken Rockwell, as well as other websites. I don't believe everything he says, nor to I discount everything he says, I make up my own mind, same as I do with other websites I read.
