New Yorkers have been buying Brooklyn artist Andrew Levine's canned food clocks for some, uh, time. Recently, Levine, who apparently has found an endless supply of old cans to turn into clocks, has licensed his Tasty Inc. tockers for national distribution. There's the ever-popular Spam clock, but we're slightly partial to his State of Maine Soldier Beans With Pork clock. Awhile back he even figured out how to make a clock out of coffee to-go cups.
