Wait Wait, Don't Purchase This/ I give it NO star

I don't know why, it was one credit. I assumed it would have music, but then as I realized it wasn't going to have music, I thought, well surely it must be some amazing wordsmith doing Tom Waits in a clever mini-biography, didn't expect a pedestrian summary, lackluster, I felt it was like reading a wikipedia entry from someone who was waiting for something, but not Tom Waits. Even if this was free, don't waste your time. I am taking the time to write this review because actually, I was fairly insulted! I am hoping the rating system allows me to give "No" star, but if I have to press one star, please subtract it and don't consider buying it, save your credit for something truly outstanding, "You can tell me that it's gospel but I know that it's only church"
