I have the query below, where the aboutme works great....put I wanted to add a new output called 'new', but use the same query. The problem is.. The 'new' information resides in a seperate table called 'user'

I know I can do:

SELECT new FROM user.. but I wanted to use the same $tmp + $i

Can this be done?
$tmp=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM profiles WHERE user_name ='".$_GET['gud']."'");
	$do_user_exist = mysql_num_rows($tmp);

	while($i=mysql_fetch_array($tmp)) {
	<b><?php echo C_PRO8;?></b>: <?php echo ($i['aboutme']);?><br>
	<b><?php echo C_PRO9;?></b>: <?php echo ($i['new']);?>
