News about Mormons, Mormonism,
and the LDS Church

Internet: New Arts, Music Sites, and Ydaho

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The newly listed Mormon websites this week include a number of arts and music sites. LDS artist Del Parson's website, Providence Music Publishing and Mark Hansen's website are probably the best of the lot, with a lot of information and clean, clear design. A very useful addition to the web is Preston Hunter's page on LDS Filmmakers. while Hunter claims the list is incomplete, it is far more complete than anything anyone else has put together.

In the odd department is the new site, Ydaho, a bald-faced attempt to capitalize on the change of Ricks College to BYU-Idaho. The site sells tee-shirts, sweatshirts, caps and other material that read "Ydaho," apparently the owner's nickname for the college.

Newly Listed Mormon Websites:

Mission alumni page for mission that covered Japan until 1973. Includes alumni list, an 'In Memorium' page for alumni that have passed on, a list of mission presidents, stories, links and a newsletter.
