It's pretty rare that Humboldt County gets national media attention for non-marijuana news. It's also a big deal when Humboldt gets mentioned on a blog like Perez Hilton.

Today we get both! Brian Slayton's OctoMom kinetic sculpture vehicle made it to, which then caused the photos to be replicated throughout the blogosphere. Slayton built the OctoMom vehicle after local hero Duane Flatmo talked him into it.

This year's Kinetic Sculpture race was awesome! If you missed it, here's a link to the official race page for photo galleries and details on the event.

one of my only questions about this Blog so far is, whats with all the marijuana hate in Humboldt county? Alot of the '' 20 somthings who ride around in big trucks with there girlfriend'' Are the same people Going to the small Mom and Pop stores keeping them Open.. Not to mention if Humboldt is SO dangerous why does Detroit Still hold #1 as America's most dangerous city? It sure as Hell isn't from the weed smoke, that's for sure. And when peoples houses Burn down becuase of Grow lights, Maybe instead of blaming the plant, you could Blame the idiot who wired the light?
