From the CB via TTC:
BREAK! is a magazine from the NCCA collegiate community. The August 2005 issue features the results of our recent "Favorite American Idol" poll. There were 4 finalists and all were close in the number of votes they received.
There are also other stories related to American Idol contestants, including Clay Aiken. See the synopsis below. There is also a link below where you can see an image of the front cover.
A year ago the NCCA published a Collegiate Standard Farewell Commemorative to Clay Aiken which many Clay fans outside the NCCA community enjoyed. They purchased it after an extra printing of that companion volume was ordered. BREAK! is not a magazine that can be purchased in any store or outlet although some NCCA members may offer their private copies for sale on eBay when it comes available. The NCCA is offering it to interested Clay fans at $4.99 plus $2.50 shipping and handling.
If there is sufficient interest outside the NCCA community for this issue of BREAK! as there was for the Clay College Life Commemorative, then an additional printing to accomodate those outside of the NCCA will be ordered.
There is currently a thumbnail of the BREAK! cover at www.collegiatestandard.com where you can place your advance order. If there are not enough orders placed to warrant an extra printing, then all orders will be refunded in the manner and sequence in which they were placed.
All of the information required to place your order is at www.collegiatestandard.com. We would like for you to indicate which idol is your favorite in the notes/comments section when placing your order but this is optional.
If you have any questions, please don't contact our offices, but email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and i will do my best to reply as soon as I can get to them. Thanks.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: We also plan to contact the fans of the other four American Idol contestants featured in BREAK! with the same opportunity for them to have copies. We don't anticipate running out of copies in the extra printing, but all advance orders will be fulfilled in the order and time they are placed. If it should occur that all copies of the extra printing of this BREAK! should sell out, then anyone who was not able to get their copy wil be promptly refunded.

In the May 25 finale, the long-haired rocker failed to bring in as many votes as Underwood, who won over audiences with her country charm. But runners-up on the Fox show have done well in the past - most notably Clay Aiken.

I just talked with someone who talked to Clay's management team (yes, the direct team). No specific Clay stuff at the moment, but they got to talking about his fans and they are very impressed with all you do, how persistant you are, how creative you are and just love you to pieces. They said Clay's fans are like non other in the business.
