This clock was created using a recycled Sanyo turntable and a Ronco’s Greatest Hits album titled “Get It On” which is replaceable. The clock movement is quartz, and requires 1 C battery (included). The entire clock measures roughly 17″w x 14″h and hangs on the wall like a picture frame with 2 hooks. It comes with the original top for safe shipping. It will make a great conversation piece on your wall or a special gift for that audiophile you know who is so hard to shop for. Since these clocks are made from actual recycled turntables and albums, condition is used with obvious normal wear and tear. Handmade in the USA. (CLICK HERE FOR LINK)

On the heels of his new album cover being banned this weekend, West revealed that in the end “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” will be made up of five covers in total.
“You get all five of them when you buy the album,” he told MTV.com.
This weekend the “Power” singer’s label, Def Jam, “strongly encouraged” him to shelf a provocative piece of artwork he claimed would adorn his fifth album.
Painted by frequent collaborator George Condo, the artwork featured a wolf like Kanye naked on a couch, bottle in hand with a naked, winged woman with a polka-dot tail and no arms straddling him.
West duly dropped the cover and tagged it “Banned in the USA!!!” on Twitter.
“They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!” West tweeted.
The rapper added that he had not thought about the response to the album cover when he designed it.
“In all honesty … I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers,” West tweeted.
Wal-Mart was quick to issue a response, claiming they never actually saw the image the rapper claimed they had banned.
“As always, it’s our standard practice to carry the edited parental advisory version, they told MTV.com in a statement. “We did not reject the cover artwork and it was never presented to us to view.”
West issued one final tongue-in-cheek comment on the Condo cover.
“In response to the reaction of my album cover,” he tweeted, “‘I’m deeply sorry if I haven’t offended everybody.'”
“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” will hit shelves — on one form or another — on Nov. 22.
