[VIDEO] Terry Bello’s Daily Grooves: Adele – “Rumor Has It”
Terry Bello’s Daily Grooves is all about good music and positive words….Yet rumors are also impervious to verification, for once verified, rumors cease to be so; they are epistomologically empty. It is for this reason that they tend to be regarded as a kind of subterranean discourse. Like gossip, rumors present one with the possibility of understanding everything without making the thing one’s own. By divorcing understanding from ownership, rumors are ineluctably public, condemned to promiscuous circulation (because, again, a rumor ceases to be a rumor once it drops out of circulation) and a kind of illegitimate historicality. Rumors constitute the “noise” between those events destined for memorialization.
