Missing a party means a lost opportunity to strengthen friendships, meet fascinating and attractive new people, and witness moments of sublime idiocy you would've cherished forever. Reclaim the idiocy part, with Sorry I Missed Your Party.
SIMYP's a gloriously shameful, wittily annotated party pic gallery taken from public Flickr accounts, curated by a Belmont-bred film-studio assistant who'd made a bet with a friend concerning "the lamest state to party in" (thankfully, eligibility was also granted to Edmonton). Beyond the expected shots of unnaturally exuberant dudes/chicks/goths, categories include old people partying in an embarrassingly youthful fashion, mug shot collectives of the socially and aesthetically awkward, costume parties, pre-1997 shindigs, and culturally specific "special days" gone awry (Quinceañera, bitches!). Big winners include a Reagan-era Tubbs/Crockett tagteam mirroring up some powdered vice; a classy, Birkenstock-clad anti-MILF sampling Bordeaux whilst casually gripping an erotic aid; a borderline inappropriate pillow fight between no less than six Princess Leias; and finally, a chubby fellow about to get tasered by his bat-eared buddy -- apparently, wearing a camo "Git-R -Done" cap was reason enough to put this flabby maniac down.
If you've got 'em, send SIMYP your own "This is How We Do It"-themed pics -- because other people have missed parties too, and only your own idiocy can ease their crippling regret.
