Private: Heaney on Outkast

Recently Elizabeth Spiers decried the excessive blog commentary about Outkast’s “Hey Ya,” characterizing the new hot topic as “yet another example of coziness (slash-incest) in the blogosphere.” Now there is evidence that even poet and Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney could be part of the nefarious blogger conspiracy.

From Seamus Heaney’s Top Hip Hop Picks (by Steve Almond):

“There are two of them, perhaps more, and in each the seed of improvisation is made bracing and new.”
