Five Thing Friday! Albums


Each Friday, here at Prism we will be tackling a very important topic… of sorts.  Five Thing Friday…  The topic will change each week, so be sure to check back.  We encourage you to comment with your own Five Things!

  • Dark Side of the Moon – Pink Floyd – A masterpiece and so sexy 🙂
