The storefront hosts a couple different PETaPOTTYs, an L.A. developed and produced "business area" for your indoor or high-rise living pet. Made of sod and using a bacteria eliminating enzyme to eliminate odors and stains, this pet potty is guaranteed for life. They even have a service that will come out to your house and replace your grass and clean your potty for you. So basically Orange Bone is not only a good store with good stuff, they are doing something good by helping all these pound puppies. Images courtesy of Daily Barker.

Introducing Jumbo Hostel, another innovative and cool design concept straight out of Stockholm's Arlanda Airport. This double-decker 1976 Boeing 747-200 has been converted into a 25 room hostel that sleeps 85 people and hosts a cafe. Oscar Dios saw an opportunity to transform this 30+ year old plane into something usable rather than have it sit and collect rust out in the desert sun. A room will run you about $160 a night and has become quite popular with international travelers on a budget. The interior has been completely refurbished and hosts new space age looking furniture and sleek white surfaces. Although most people, myself included, want nothing more than to get out of a plane especially after a long trip, this idea might be just what our airports need with the travel industry being so unpredictable these days. I do appreciate the effort to make use of this colossal aircraft, and with the force to green up our living spaces by using unexpected materials such a sea containers for housing and storefronts, we just may see more of Oscar Dios' concept around the world. Check out more at Jumbo Hostel.

Eddie also worded me up on Irish journalist Eamon Dillon and his book from which this photo came, The Outsiders. I will definitely be ordering Eamon's book and if you're interested in more of Eamon's work check out his website, www.dilloninvestigates.com. Check back next week for a photo of Paul CA$H's funeral.

The living room is made up of zebrawood paneling, a custom Plexiglas screen and a silver ball chain curtain. The Sandalwood Stripe rug is from the Doug & Gene (brother) Meyer collection for NIBA Rugs. Vintage Florence Knoll sofa, 1955 Martin Eisler chairs surround the Sedgewick coffee table, another Meyer's brothers design.

The angry swan faucet. This fixture scares the shit out of me. It looks seriously pissed and if you have ever encountered an angry swan you know what I am talking about. Why do you think this swan is so effing mad? Did someone just come along and ruin this poor swan's whole day or something? Probably not. I think this swan just has a chip on her shoulder. Pipe down swan, I'm sick of your attitude.
