The great Henri Cartier-Bresson once said that "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy." Of course, you never caught him hanging around events like the ones featured on Last Night's Party, Cobrasnake, and Misshapes. Alex Blagg sifts through the wreckage of our modern-day joy. That's right, kids, it's that precise moment known as Blue States Lose!

4. Misshapes. July 14th, 2007 photo #178: "Bro, check it out! I've got a tattoo on the INSIDE OF MY MOUTH! Isn't that, like, rad?"
3. Last Night's Party. 7am Swim photo #4829: One of the many downsides of doing cocaine is ending up in strange apartments at six in the morning having long, incredibly personal conversations with people like these dudes.
2. The Cobrasnake. Birthday Face photo #8994: We see people wearing a lot of ridiculous shit around here, but a big dopey mouse costume and a fucking trucker hat? What a douche.
