The Classics According to Ruin'dHens


Let's face it, a good number of people find dealing with the classics tedious, bland, confusing, and sometimes just plain boring. Since we have such a love of the classics in every imaginable form we thought we'd take a refreshing approach to them, sort of colour them up a bit. The classics according to our rather warped but well meaning minds. To celebrate them, if you will! Who knows, by the time we're done you may find yourself wanting to read or view them for the first time or to just revisit them!

It's our hope that you enjoy the site and take time to visit some the other entertaining and though provoking sites linked here.

May we have mercy on the Masters.
May the Masters have mercy on us!
May we all have mercy on the classics
