Bostonians Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan are back for an encore, this time taking a bite out of Lil Wayne’s comeback single “6 Foot 7 Foot.” It’s not quite as technically impressive as Heidemann’s lightning-fast delivery of the Busta Rhymes verse on “Look at Me Now,” but it’s still an impressive approximation of Weezy’s raspy, free-association delivery (and Noonan’s re-creation of the beat is also pretty mind-bending). Watch it after the jump.

William Shatner reveals track list of his space-themed album and surprise guest stars -- Bootsy Collins and Brad Paisley are just the beginning
A lot of people talk Shat about Captain Kirk’s music career, but you have to give William credit for sticking to his guns (or in this case, phasers): he’s 80 years old, he stars on a CBS sitcom, he slashes travel prices, and he still finds time to pursue his much-maligned passion for music.
Yes, this means that after thirty-plus years, fans will finally hear a studio version of Shatner’s bizarre talk-sing take on Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” which he first performed at the Science Fiction Film Awards in the ’70s and has since become a so-bad-it’s-impossible-to-stop-watching YouTube favorite.
The list of covers promises the strangest collection of tunes The Shat has yet recorded—which is saying something, since this is a guy who recorded an album combining Shakespeare monologues with “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” and “Mr. Tambourine Man” in the ’60s. And some of his most interesting—and most well-known—musical co-stars. READ FULL STORY
In Hollywood, you know you’ve reached critical mass when you’re asked to appear on The Simpsons. In the music world, another Fox show provides the same stamp of transcendence (just as long as it’s not performed by Foo Fighters or Kings of Leon).
According to nymag.com, the song will appear an upcoming episode that centers around the prom, and will either be sung by Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling, or the combination of Salling and returning guest star Jonathan Groff, reprising his role as Vocal Adrenaline leader Jesse St. James.
At this point, both Black and Glee have faced so many backlashes (and, uh, frontlashes) that it’s impossible to tell whether it’s OK to still like them, or whether you should try to be ironic about it or not. What do you think, readers—are you ready for the fun fun fun fun? Should Black make a cameo? Tell us in the comments below.

News from the left-field of awesome: lo-fi folk singer Iron and Wine (a.k.a. Sam Beam) covers an ’80s his from dance-pop icon George Michael.
