I LOVE YOU BABY, BUT I JUST CAN'T SMILE: Have any readers used the website CD Baby to order music? It's an e-tailer that specializes in music by "independent musicians," which the site defines as:

[In•de•pen•dent: (adj.) Not having sold one's life, career, and creative works over to a corporation.]



I ask because I want to know if the message that they sent to me in the shipping confirmation e-mail is the standard text. Here it is:

Your CDs have been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CDs and polished them to make sure they were in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CDs into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, October 19th.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year". We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!
