David Yetter's Outside the University Homepage
This site is perpetually under construction
Well, you've stumbled into my website. Actually I have three websites,
one for my
one for all of the Orthodox Christian parishes and missions in Kansas outside the KC and Wichita metro areas, plus the K-State OCF,
and this one for
everything else, or four once you count my blog,
Ortho Opinions. Free blog-hosting being quite easy to use, my old plan to include rants
about one thing an another on this site has been called off: you can find my rants at
Ortho Opinions, instead. Anime reviews, however will stay at
Outside the Uni Anime
Here are links to some of my favorite websites. All links open in a
Outside the Uni Anime My very own anime review page.
Exclusive reviews and links to my reviews in the Anime
Cafe Parents' Guide to Anime. Image galleries may be
- Anime Cafe A good
site for anime reviews. Also has a lively bulletin-board style
forum for otaku to discuss anime and (sometimes only marginally)
- Anime Web
Turnpike A great source of links to anything and everything about
anime on the web.
run by Bon Appetit and incorporating the content from the now defunct
Gourmet Magazine. Just about
the only recipe site you'll ever need. Before the web, when I used to
take magazines, my family got Gourmet. The new editor
maimed it, taking it down from the glory days of the 1980's, and the market put
it out of its misery.
(Say whatever you want about "greed" and the politics of the day,
the 1980's, when everyone wanted to imitate the old rich--that's what
"yuppie-ism" was--was a high water-mark for haute cuisine,
classic-styled clothing, and production values in consumer goods.)
News and Politics
- The Briefing Room Up and coming successor as America's top conservative news discussion forum to my former long-time favorite, FreeRepublic.com, whose
owner has drunk the nativist kool-aid and started banning posters who recognize that the nomination of Donald Trump is not in the interests of either the GOP or the conservative movement and that his election would not be helpful to either liberty or America's national interest broadly construed.
- BBC News Does this need
- Economist.com Back when
I subscribed to lots of magazines, The Economist was the only
news magazine I took. Now thanks to a gift from my wife, I'm a subscriber again.
The very pragmatic European, but generally
pro-American, outlook it provides is a nice balance to the American
liberal media and American talk-radio, both of which tend to
be a bit narcissistic.
- Romanity.org Website of
the late Fr. John Romanides (Memory eternal! Memory eternal! Memory
eternal!). If you grew up in America, it's probably the case that
everything you know about Church history and the Middle Ages is false.
(Well, not quite, but most of the basic suppositions are.) Visit
this site to find out why.
- The Orthodox Christian Foundation
useful links to other Orthodox sites and edifying reading.
- Eighth Day Books
On Line The website of Wichita Kansas's jewel of a bookstore, with probably the
best selection in the US of Orthodox Christian books under one roof.
- The Antiochian Archdiocese
homepage for the Self-Ruled North American exarchate of the
Patriarchate of Antioch, the
Archdiocese which I serve as a subdeacon.
- The Orthodox Church in America homepage
of the (autocephalous) Orthodox Church of America.
- The Greek Archdiocese homepage
for the Greek Orthodox
Archdiocese, the North American exarchate of the Patriarch of Constantinople.
Includes links to the Orthodox World News.
- ROCOR homepage of the
Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Two on-line publications of this
fervently traditional Orthodox jurisdiction can be found at
Orthodox America and
The Orthodox Family (back-
- Hexwar.net Wargames! Before World of Warcraft, before Magic: the Gathering, before Mortal Kombat, before even Dungeons and Dragons, there was hex-grid wargaming.
Back in the day it was a pain: you had to spend half an hour sorting
and setting up the counters before you could play, and unless you went
to a convention, you only had the three other military-history nerds at
your high school (or twelve at your college) to play against. Now,
thanks to the wonderful work of a small crew of computer programmers,
who also happen to be old-school gamers, in Scotland, there are
hundreds of opponents all over the world to play, and the counters are
mostly set-up, virtually, on your computer. Check it out at Hexwar. If you like what you see and decide to become a paid subscriber, please put my Hexwar user name dyetter
in the Referrer User Name field at the bottom of the form: I get two
weeks added to my subscription for each new player I refer.
If, contrary to Sean Cubitt's claim, you've been jiving to Walther van
der Vogelweide's medieval Palestinalied, and want to know the lyrics in
English instead of Middle High German, I finally tracked down a
translation: Partial translation of Walter van der Vogelweide's Palestinalied (J.W. Thomas, translator) with comments on which stanzas performed by various neo-medieval and goth bands.
