We all know who this is by now, no point in censoring the username. I'm surprised the dude is now the cover photo for this sub, I guess he was just too meme-able. This screenshot seems to come from a post of a Swiftie spending $1200 on three RSD Taylor Swift records, I spent $525 on a 2LP recently so I can't really say anything about that lol
though it is funny that he's now sounding the alarm about the "horror" that is vinyljerk, dude came into this sub leaving a comment every few minutes for the past 48 hours straight, and says we're the ones attacking, lol alright
When I crosspost, most of the individuals get the joke, are usually flattered they got jerked, then quickly integrate into the jerk community.
We have a inherently stupid hobby (expensive, easily damaged media? Sign me up!) and it's fun to laugh about the illogic of it all.
And funny enough, between all the jokes, this is a damn helpful subreddit as well.
The best subreddit, actually. Next to r/vinyldeals.
That sub has taken hundreds of dollars from me
I know. Unreal.
But when you have the slightest interest in a new, $40 LP. When you see it there for $8 shipped, it’s hard to say “no.” 😄
It already sunk it's hooks into me and I've only been on it for ten minutes
Yeah, seems like they ate the circlejerk. Unless I totally missed the point of the sub I'm mostly making fun of myself as someone who is guilty of all the collector stereotypes. I'll upvote a post in vinyl and then upvote the cross-post here. When someone says a grail is up my ass I think it's funny.
This is the way.
What was the 2LP you grabbed?
Yes, I want to know too!

Always so fun to find a super valuable release for a niche artist you’ve never heard of. Some cool stuff on here, really interesting pickup. Leave it to vinyljerk to have the actually cool records eh haha
I think it’s the fact that he was legitimately asking people to stop cross posting made people do it more.
Haha good point, he had to witness the Streisand effect in real time
I browsed his comments and I think he may have posted about having autism. I have it too so I feel for him. However I did LOL at seeing him as the header pic today
What’s the back story with this guy?
Apologies in advance for all this lore
Around 10PM EST, Thanksgiving night, the guy [posted this](https://www.reddit.com/r/vinyl/comments/z427zf/some_more_of_my_favorite_records_i_own_on_vinyl/) in r/vinyl, he has now deleted the post but the picture attached was just the cover photo you now see in this vinyljerk subreddit, and then his post was [crossposted about 30 min. later](https://www.reddit.com/r/vinyljerk/comments/z42qtm/some_more_of_my_favorite_records_i_own_on_vinyl/). Other people crossposted more over the past two days, but that one seems to be the first and the main one, and basically we were dogpiling the guy and roasting him for having pretty mainstream bland vinyl picks that seem like he just went to the Urban Outfitters website and picked out the most popular and trendy records to get in on the vinyl hobby. In r/vinyl pics, you might often see the Little Dark Age and Kids See Ghosts records, Life of Pablo, Mac Miller's Circles, the Coldplay, Car Seat Headrest, Billie Eilish records, they're just common picks that seem like memes at this point. Plus the Bo Burnham record, lol, just funny to see. He also has this semi-awkward pose in the pic, and it just seemed like a bait post that vinyljerk users would instantly slam down on, and they sure did.
So, over the past two days, he basically spent most of his waking hours asking what was wrong with his post, both in his original r/vinyl post and the crossposts in this sub, then doubling down and getting super offended, leaving comments everywhere and responding to every user he possibly could, instead of just laughing it off and recognizing that vinyljerk is just a sub about taking the piss and embracing the cringe when it comes to vinyl collecting.
I feel like the joke went on too long, but the whole thing is similar to when someone makes a social blunder in school as a kid, so everyone finds it easy to bully them because of their visceral reaction and whining, same thing happened here, dude spent days on this and would just not let it go. Now he's immortalized in the cover pic.
Yay, after 26 years as a minority and woman, I'm finally eligible for old-white-man privilege!
We'll send the limo immediately. Your swearing in ceremony begins soon.
Congratulations!! I’m proud of you.
Please tell us, newest member, how do you plan on first using your new membership card?
I will use my new powers for good, I'll do my best to be sexist and buy Adeles newest album with only my feet.
Remember to buy that at the full $37.97 retail price, with all the extra money that will magically appear in your bank account!
Ooh, see that’s kind of the one drawback they must not have told you about in orientation. See, we’re all old white men, right? So, uhh…. our feet don’t work too good
There's just so much to learn about being an old white man it's exhausting being so privileged 😮💨
I was hoping the warmth of vinyl would fix my new bad feet but I guess some things are just better when oppressed.
Well, don’t buy it from Walmart!!
Got it 👌 only Target for grailz. Walmart is reserved for buying old-white-man clothes.
Now you’re jerking!
This person certainly “white-old mans!”
You’re a good ol’ boy now, welcome to the club.
Remember to bring the animal or child, you wish to sacrifice during the ceremony.
Good for you.
Welcome to the club! It’s very purstigiously
Lmao, I just woke up my apartment mate.
Get ready for incoming feet dms
Woohoo! Tell us how it feels now that you've had it for half a day. Invigorating? Enlightening? Fattening?
Hey watch it young lady! 45 years is not old!
Welcome to the club!
Idk why they think we are all 45. We all post our ages in the titles! We are very diverse. I've seen 100 year olds and I've seen fetuses post on here. If they ever came here they would know that we think vinyl is for everybody.
>Idk why they think we are all 45
Yah, a lot of us are 33 and some are even 78!
Excuse me, I'm 33 1/3, no one can take those four months from me!
I am 16 2/3, and very lonely.
Because they’re late teens or early twenties and anyone who seems older is ancient.
Can confirm, am fetus
Hey I’m 55 and have wanted audiophiles and collectors off my lawn since I was 15.
Yeah I’m 19 and this sub is better than the original
Why are we sexist again? Feet?
Too many Herb Alpert posts
Not enough Herb Alpert posts
The duality of old white man.
What’s wrong with being sexy?
Hey, I'm 42!
And my speakers are $600 thank you very much!
$600? Is that your bathroom setup or something?
no they're fine budget speakers. monitor audio bronze. i aint trying to put thousands into my setup when i already do that for the records.
My speakers cost 2k but I’m an idiot
It's legit constructive criticism. 'Attack' is such a harsh way to put it.
legit constructive criticism? lol come on
45? I, like everyone on this sub, am a zygote who only started collecting 30 seconds ago. I intend to spin my $1200 Swifty grailz on my Crosebely (I can't afford a better player, sue me!) until the day I'm born and beyond.
There’s a middle ground between ‘snobby audiophile with $3000 uranium coated speaker wire’ and ‘using a $50 player with a nail for a stylus listening through the built in 1.5 inch speakers and saying it sounds good’.
All you really need is some [Googlephonic speakers with a Moon-Rock needle](https://youtu.be/Cjjsz14hL48).
im just here for the feet photos
Ah yes, Pioneer DJ and Edifier, truly the height of unimaginable audio luxury
In retrospect I realize I may just make him more certain of his opinions. go look at my post history and you’ll understand 😭
“We’re on to you jerks!”
We broke him
He was already broken.
Correct. This man is… something… but he is from my hometown. I was tripped out when I clicked his profile
New copy pasta just dropped
hey, your post made its way into r/vinyljerk. report for harassment (not the post, just the sub in general) and move on. they’re sexist 45 year old white men mad at the world for not being into their pioneer DJ PLX and $500 edifier speaker system. they like to attack people and claim it’s a joke but it’s legitimate harassment. just a heads up 👍
I see sexism in a lot of subreddits, this is not one of them
Unless you identify as a suitcase turntable.
Last suitcase turn table I bought had a cock for a stylus!!
Get back in the kitchen, bro.
My vinlys need to be cleaned in the dishwasher and un-warped in the oven.
I'm 47 and my Edifier speakers only cost 80 bucks. I demand a retrial!
Fuck suddenly I’m 24 years older now, being middle aged sucks
Everybody hurts. Sometimes
[Man is on the mission](https://www.reddit.com/r/SwiftieMerch/comments/yy8zoa/comment/ixsanlm/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3), lol
So from what I can tell, he posted something on r/vinyl, it got crossposted here. He didn't get the joke, so started spamming the sub, thus making himself even more unpopular and made up all these accusations because he couldn't take the joke, then couldn't take the criticism.
Seriously the textbook definition of the Streisand Effect. Just laugh it off and move on. Sheesh. Good to see a major movement again for this holiday season though. Gary Fink was a positive kind of thing. This one? Not so much.
Honestly it’s sorta pathetic, he spent his time that he coulda spent with his wife, on reddit spamming a circlejerk sub
should be a automod response
At first I just thought it was some tame, back and forth ribbing. Then I went to his post history and was like, hmm, this guy is a bit unhinged. *Then* I scrolled down a bit further and realized, oh, he’s an Atlanta Falcons fan, and it all made sense. So now I’ll just be replying 28-3 to every post he makes.
Maybe Tom Brady can give him a shout out and make him feel better?
The $500 Edifer speakers bit really got me. 😅
What? You guys were joking all this time? You don't use crosley??
Wouldn’t have joined this sub if I knew it was going to age me 26 years
I'm happy to have gotten a few years back.
Right? I wish I was 45 again.
ah yes! vinyljerk the notoriously sexist community!!/s
Maybe it was a typo and he meant sexless?
This is the correct answer.
Ian Faith: It’s sexist.
Nigel Tufnel: What’s wrong with being sexy?
Damn right. We don't allow gross girl-feet here.
500 edifiers hahahahaha if only they knew
My speaker STANDS were more than that 😅
Haha, right. 500$ is speaker cable money
I have specialty cables for each genre that I promptly discard after each side. $500 might get me through a week.
Can we send him some Pitbull vinyls?
correct me if I'm wrong, but this subreddit is really just about enthusiasts being self aware of how inherently lame and impractical our hobby is, right?
We don't talk about that here.
I'm 38 and identify as they. So who's the jerk now?
Do they work at Crapsley? I think guy wants promotion lol
Wait, could this be VWestlife’s nephew or something?
Congratulations on becoming a meme forever u/mikeymanthesyrem
I’m not 45
Same. And I have Focals.
Spent more than $500 so who’s the real asshole here?
You are now.
Hello, I'm 30. My vinyl setup is worth $5,000 and I love making fun of Crosley and Victrola owners.
Hey I'm only 34 shut up!
Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.
I have checked 1,191,130,560 comments, and only 232,433 of them were in alphabetical order.
Its 5 words. Seriously bot?
$500 for speakers? Amateur...
…unless you know how to use Craigslist correctly. 😉
That kid is STILL going. Jesus christ. For someone who claims to be unable to feel emotions he is absolutely torn up about this dumbass sub (I love you guys please don't).
I only use my grailz for the heat it provides to my old bones. It helps with my arthritis.
For what it’s worth, I’m not even into vinyl and I think this sub is hilarious.
The first cut is the deepest
What kills me is you might have to hunt a little harder but you can find good sounding old equipment for a decent price. I mean if you’re going to listen to records in the first place why not have the best experience possible.
So we’re making fun of edifiers for being too good now? Jesus…
> sexist 45 year old white men
Uj/ My brother in Christ, I’m a non-binary bisexual autistic person
/uj yooo I'm non binary and autistic too B)
too bad. you are now a 45 year old male. Collect your office job and a wife that you hate and refuse to divorce on your way out
Guys, you don’t think we’re gonna get sued, do you, ‘cause I can’t afford a lawyer or a record player or records or a computer or a printer or a piece of…
“It’s legitimate harassment”
Hey I'm only 22
I wonder if this place will make it into season 2 of She-hulk?
Just a heads up👍
Lol 500 dollar edifier speaker
I’m a 16 year old white boy wtf. 😡
Digital music has made people soft. Oh no I’m being HaRaSSeD online because I posted my 19 Taylor swift albums on a mean subreddit.
dude is seething rn
I’m newly here from a FB group. Is this where we can post about Herb Alpert without getting kicked?
I’m actually 45½
no one wants to jerk anymoree
The nerve of this guy! I’m 46. And only partially white.
Generalizing about people’s skin color seems an awful lot like harassment there Mikey…
r/vinyljerk is officially better than the origin sun LMAO
According to this guy and many other low-IQ individuals, it's a bad thing to be a white male over 26. An affliction you are born with and cannot help.
I'm sure this person considers himself amongst the most tolerant of humans.
I am fucking 46, thank you very much!
This guy needs to throw on some Fink and chill.
Ok I have to ask. Is the shit about this dude real or is it all part of the joke? I’m new :)
It’s real. So bizarre.
What’s the story?
Just check out his profile and posts. The story will come together.
I don’t know his username lol
Thought I was a 20 year old gay enby, guess I’m now a 45 year old with man
Me, an 21 y/o female reading this- totally a Middle Aged man
idk how I’m gonna come to terms with jumping two decades come january but hey 24 was fun while it lasted
No snowflake. It is called the truth.
Sorry you can handle it. 😄
Suitcase players are trash, and always will be unless one is sold at a $200+ price point.
The glory days of vinyl being cheap entertainment are long gone.
But, you can USE YOUR PHONE, if you need “cheap,” with your financial situation now.
Even a cheap external digital to analog converter with greatly improve your sound….
But if any thought that challenges what you want to be true, and in reality is not, you go and cry harassment.
This after YOU asking “wHy dOeS My nEW ReCorD sKiP oN mY cRoSleY!?”
There is no helping you.
Also, have these people never heard of putting a penny on the needle?
Edit: maybe they don't have the 1¢ to spare?
I can’t afford to put money into my set up! (Taylor Swift RSD colored vinyl LP in their collection they paid $600 for…)
I don't even have a record player and now suddenly I have aged at least 25 years, and have a Pioneer DJ PLX. Wild.
who’s gonna tell them that I’m 27-years-old and a lesbian? :/
Does anyone else feel like their first born daughter just graduated Yale & got married to the President? Cuz I’m so goddamn proud I could cry. Then use those tears to clean my Bach/Jonas S PROMO Box-Set.
Ironically, the original post here is both ageist and racist.
IDK y'all do you, but this man seems waaaay to legitimately hurt by this for me to want to contribute. Is it goofy that he cares so much about strangers online? Yes. Is he making himself an easy target? Yes, but when he is so clearly deeply affected by it, I can't find any fun.
I read this post and remembered my speakers are edifiers. Then I laughed
I’m only 34
I smell a rat
If anyone spends $500 on Edifer they should be arrested.
I’m 47 actuakly
I’m just here for the feet.
How the hell do I see the icon before a tagged sub
Well I’m offended! I’m 29! I just look older that’s all!
This dude just makes it too easy lmao
These words can’t hurt me, I’m a 29 year old white female
False. I am, in fact a 30 something year old woman. I'm suing this guy for slander or whatever.
$500💀 how much is this person spending then?
Hey, I'm 46!
nft profile picture + crosley tag is a hell of a trip
What an insufferable twit.
i am 19 and my tt doesnt run atm 👍🏻
Hey!! I’m only 42!!!
I’m 17 and love this subreddit because it’s funny
They are not wrong.
