Today is Jackson's eight-month birthday

Today is Jackson's eight-month birthday so I thought I'd burn him a CD of his favorite sides. He seems to like Pink, parts of the O, Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack, and the Beatles (especially "Across the Universe"). He's a little lukewarm on Oasis and P.J. Harvey. Jack has already given Jackson one of his electric basses -- he lays it down on the floor and puts Jackson's hands on the strings and lets him make random noises. They both really light up when he hits a note.
