Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Over the past few weeks, the Pink Floyd website has been adding special Dark Side of the Moon prism artwork to their index page from artist Storm Thorgerson (who created the majority of the Pink Floyd album artwork over the years – guy is awesome). It has been in celebration of the 40th anniversary of one of the most absolutely badass albums of all time. In 1973, Pink Floyd released Dark Side of the Moon, and it has since been the longest running album on the Billboard charts. It was the first Floyd album I bought way back in middle school that helped turn Pink Floyd into one of my favorite bands. And now, 40 years later it hasn’t lost a shred of its sheer awesomeness. (40 years since its release – not since I was in middle school!)
To all my young readers, this is a perfect opportunity to begin your journey into musical discovery. Ask your parents, I’m sure they’ve got the CD, the cassette, or, hopefully, even the LP. Though, I suppose you don’t know what an LP is. There’s something else you can ask your parents about.
Anyway, the whole point here was that all the special artwork has been revealed, and it has been made into a downloadable poster in three different sizes. Click the link above or the poster below to go to the site, and download whatever size you want. A preview of the poster is below. Enjoy. See you on the dark side of the moon.
