Youngsters these days.

My 24 year old grandson finished his tour in the service recently and has been staying with us for the past several months. He got himself a good job, to help out and take care of himself, while deciding what to do in the future - back to school, etc.
After he got a few good pay checks, I joking suggested he buy his Pa a new CD player. If looks could kill. "Why would you want a new CD player?" He asked. I told him "just to upgrade the one I have". "No one buys CD players anymore" he exclaimed. "Then what's your Idea of fine Audio, a WalkMan?" I asked. "WOW! There's not even any such thing as a WalkMan any more" he said. To which I replied, "Ya there is, we have a guy on our forum who swears by em". He just rolled his eyes and said "No - Streaming! Using an iPhone or iPad you can get a streaming package and get all the music you want". "Why would I want to do That?" I asked "I have hundreds of great LPs and CDs, that I'm perfectly happy with." To that he replied "OK Boomer".  I guess that meant he knew I was right.
Why is it that youngsters just don't understand the love that some of us old folks have for our old LPs and CDs and we  have no interest in paying for another monthly service, to listen to all the music we already have?
old folks tend to be crazy over spending something that will please their eyes including walrus tusks for instance. 
over decade ago i've became a rational freak and would collect rain water for watering my garden when it's not raining and stopped my spendings for good except necessary items and i fully agree with your more rational son regardless of what you got to like.  
Thanks all for the comments and advise. 
While I probably will never give up my LPs and CDs, I might do well to upgrade to a newer (either new or used) CDP/DAC capable of running streaming devices. When it comes to streaming, never say never, I guess ;-) Jim
Who cares what a contemporary 24-year-old thinks about anything, let alone hi-fi? When I was 24, I had an ARC/bi-amped Magneplanar Tympani/Thorens-SME-Decca/Revox system. What's this kid have, ear buds?
By the way, "OK Boomer" isn't really a compliment. I'm nearing 60.

I see that now. Guess I'm going to have to have a talk with that young man LOL.....Jim
In between doctor appointments, and yelling at the neighborhood kids to get the hell off of my lawn, I was shocked to learn that I am the only one in my family that owns a CD player. Nope, none of my kids or grand-kids even has a stereo system at all.

For those of you who have uploaded (or is it downloaded?) your CD collections, then subsequently donated them to the thrift stores, I have two words for you. THANK YOU.
