Pardon the Interruption—Got Blood?

Check out these stars-in-the-making in today’s Pardon the Interruption. The students of Brooklyn’s PS 19 wrote and recorded this rap video in support of NY Blood Center’s Little Doctors Program. Take the lead from these little rappers and donate during National Blood Donor Month. Even those of you with needle phobias will be warming to the idea once this catchy chorus gets in your head.

Pardon the Interruption—Selling books by amputation!

Prepare yourselves! This is by no means your ordinary book trailer. With unsuspecting charm and grace only the most skilled of surgeons can master, author Max Barry lends a satirical twist to the usual trailer with a sneak peek (literally) of Machine Man. While not a Dorchester title, a trailer of this finesse deserves spotlight attention!

Don’t try this at home. So help me—if I start getting e-mails that you’ve all gone and hacked off your limbs, you can’t say I didn’t warn you. I’ll certainly be impressed, but lacking in sympathy.
