So Get Born came home from tour to discover that our e-mail address has been suspended due to lack of payment of our internet bill which at this point is around 120$,we all came home broke and as a result cannot afford this bill right now,so here's what YOU can do.We have about 15 copies left of the Get Born 2007 Anthology(The first 4 issues of GB in one volume),as well as many copies of Get Born #5(Featuring Joe Wetteroth and Mathieu Paul),and Mathieu Pauls new chapbook.If you'd like to help Get Born out and enjoy some great poetry you can Paypal payment for any of these books to droppinmanychristians@hotmail.com ,Anthology is 6$,3$ for the other two,please specify which books you're ordering.Also if you'd just like to end any kind of donation whatsoever to our cause you can send it to the above mentioned Paypal address as well.If you've bee trying to reach us through e-mail that's why it hasn't been sent.

Our next reading is the first Monday in December so if you'd like to read please let us know soon.

Thank you.

Holden in a drawer



GET BORN:

So,as many of you may or may not know the Typo Cafe will be closing during the second week of March.This poses a dillema as far as holding future readings goes because A.It was all ages B.They were not in the interests of making any kind of money,and C.It was basically the perfect atmosphere to host such a thing.Now,I'm looking into possibly holding one at Dressels and maybe Duffs as well.If anyone has any idea at all about other venues that would host such a thing please let me know ASAP.In other news,I've recently run into a huge monetary set-back and as a result Get Born #2 may not be coming out as soon as expected,I'm going to try to make it down to this 5 cent copy place sometime this week.If anyone would like to volunteer to drive me that would be very helpful and much appreciated.I'll keep you updated as to the progress of both.Thank you.


BORN BEAT:

The show last night culminated in 1 broken toe,1 broken micstand,and countless disappointed onlookers.In other words the evening was a smash hit,until the 11th,keep your dicks dry.
