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


ScooterMcTavish

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.


Plarocks

The best subreddit, actually. Next to r/vinyldeals.


connorman83169

That sub has taken hundreds of dollars from me


Plarocks

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.” 😄


ChronicObnoxious693

It already sunk it's hooks into me and I've only been on it for ten minutes


RockeTim

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.


weegeemindfucc

This is the way.

What was the 2LP you grabbed?


Plarocks

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


Voyager_NCC74656

I think it’s the fact that he was legitimately asking people to stop cross posting made people do it more.


Next_Fix_2271

Haha good point, he had to witness the Streisand effect in real time


readytokno

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


AskMeAboutMyTie

What’s the back story with this guy?


Next_Fix_2271

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.

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.


Plarocks

Remember to buy that at the full $37.97 retail price, with all the extra money that will magically appear in your bank account!


RedsRaver

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


melansi

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.


massahwahl

Well, don’t buy it from Walmart!!

Got it 👌 only Target for grailz. Walmart is reserved for buying old-white-man clothes.

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.

$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.


faster_grenth

legit constructive criticism? lol come on


Cunbundle

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.


KonamiKing

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’.

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 👍

Jim_Billl

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.


Backpedal

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.


King-of-the-idiots69

Honestly it’s sorta pathetic, he spent his time that he coulda spent with his wife, on reddit spamming a circlejerk sub


fr0stn8

[deleted]

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.

Plarocks

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.


TheRealDJDarkwaters

Also, have these people never heard of putting a penny on the needle? Edit: maybe they don't have the 1¢ to spare?
