Now that my week of slacking is over it’s time to get back on my posting grind. It is in that spirit that I give you the last installment of our deep, penetrating probe on the physical act of love with man’s best friend & other quadrupeds. This clip includes a call-in from an audience member with a suspiciously extensive amount of information to share on the topic. Far be it from me to call into question the proclivities of Worst Case Scenario listeners. I’m not here to judge, merely to assail character, slanderously accuse, and sometimes impune. With any luck there will be more highlights soon to come, on topics other than the salacious treatment of cherished family pets. But that may be a rather ambitious hope for the breadth of our subject matter. For some reason this clip of pt.3 is accidentally labeled as pt.2… nonetheless it is actually pt. 3
Continuing with Worst Case Scenario’s hard-hitting, in-depth investigation of the forbidden love between man and dog, this second chapter leads us to find that answers to our previous questions only lead to more questions. Our engineer Adam Strange manages to find the actual news footage of the Memphis canine sex caper, and we get to hear the story first hand from the dog’s owner, bringing to light some ironic turns in the story and one twist that is worthy of M. Night Shyamalan. If you would like to listen the episode in it’s entirety you can follow the link below. Otherwise without further ado…
After marking the 2 year anniversary of Gurp City South’s online radio program Worst Case Scenario we finally launched live video streaming of each week’s episode via Twitter, which may turn out to be a brilliant stroke of marketing or a fatally stupendous error depending on how the broadening audience reacts to the myriad of retarded conversations & activities intrinsic to the staff of our show. Such behavior clearly exemplified by the 2nd week of live video broadcasting when co-host Hollywood Cole, showing up adrift on Jameson, subsequently put me in a headlock & jail raped my face by licking my beard 7 separate times. A gesture that from my perspective would have gone gleefully unviewed by the listening audience, but appeared to be a career highlight in the questionable opinions of my co-conspirators.
A secondary benefit of the video feed is that we get to chop up some of the funnier segments into short, digestable pieces. Which brings us to today’s post, the 1st of a hopefully consistent series of Worst Case Scenario highlight reels on GCS. Herein part 1 of a conversation about a man in Memphis, TN caught in the throes of passion with his neighbor’s dog. If you enjoy, the show can be listened to live every Thursday from 10pm to midnight on
or you can just go to the archives on said page at anytime during the week for that week’s episode. To watch live or to check out previous episodes via twitcast check us out here:
In the first year of broadcasting Wost Case Scenario we often assumed that we would be kicked off the air largely for the slapdash, lackluster, obnoxiously negligent manner of the show, or perhaps just because of the sheer heroic volume of wanton on-air drinking by the cast. In year two, between the shameless sexual harassment of female callers by poorly impersonated versions of Sean Connery & Morgan Freeman, and attempts to get grown women to text sweet booby shots to our 15 year old Hungarian intern, we began to appreciate the likelihood that our defrocking would could come on the heels of possible criminal charges.
It is only now in the onset of our third year on the air that our shenanigans have really begun to hit their stride so to speak, perfecting the art of pushing the envelope of bad taste right to the razor thin borderline of obscenity and/or pornography and the outright corruption of a minor, without crossing over. Congratulations us. As promised the link below is part 2 of the 2 year anniversary episode featuring members of the Fist Fam & others. Thank you for supporting the foolish absurdities of a gang of reputed wise crackers and the questionable buffoonery of known punchinellos.
So as you can probably tell from my victory pose in the above cherished moment from the Gurpocalypse show, this winning shit feels pretty god damned good right now. It’s like being wrapped in a snuggie made out of titties that taste like birthday cake. Hosting Worst Case Scenario, the drunkest & surliest talk radio show on all of the internet was already quite a loftily dubious honor. But celebrating our two year anniversary as the #1 show on the station… priceless. Who would’ve thought that gathering a cadre of reprobates, misanthropes and repeat felons around a case of beer and a bottle of Jameson for the purposes of spirited on-air debate and libelous hate-speech would find a home in the hearts of so many?
On that note I have to thank all our listeners & supporters that have kept us on the air for way longer than I ever expected, and also to our bosses at ashevillefm.org & their sick sense of humor, for putting us on the air and risking possible legal action every week by leaving us there. Since the Anniversary episode aired a few weeks ago featuring guest appearances from former cast members & most of the Fist Fam, I have been receiving calls & messages from people demanding I re-post it somewhere. Apparently folks are quite fond of this one, so I chopped it into the three talk segments and between the weekly free music drops I will be posting the pieces here over the next week or so.
Anyway, click the link below & give a listen to part 1 of what some have been calling our funniest episode to date. And If you enjoy it spread the word, re-post etc. You can listen to Worst Case Scenario live every Thursday from 10pm-midnight (east coast time) on Ashevillefm.org. Each episodes archive is available to listen to all week on the WCS page of the station site.
Worst Case Scenario 2yr Anniversary episode pt1:
As the summer of GurpStock comes to a close, we end it by blowing the cap stone off the motherfucker. The Fist Fam returned home for the wedding of GCS’s stalwart crew DJ, Football (you may recall him from his picture, curled up on the floor in front of the toilet in another post on this site). And we felt this would be the perfect opportunity for the whole crew to get together for our first all Gurp City South bill at Asheville’s largest music venue The Orange Peel.
As usual the weekend started early, on Thursday night with the 2 year anniversary episode of our radio show “Wost Case Scenario” with an all star cast of guests and former staff members of the show. The night was nearly spoiled by the misguided caper of one kleptomaniacal floozy once again proving that you can’t trust a big butt & a smile attempting to Ocean’s 11 a pair of 12 packs out of my fridge. Lucky for me I am the Lester Freemon of the sauce, and thwarted this silly bitch’s misbegotten heist before a clean get away could be made.
Miraculously though the weekend was a daisy chain of benders, climaxing on Saturday with DJ Football’s wedding immediately followed by the Gurp City South show the entire crew managed to make it to show time with their collective game face on and destroy all four sets. Details of after partying will remain undisclosed to protect the guilty. But on behalf of myself, Fist Fam, The Ville Boyz, TopR Holiday, Adam Strange, Chris Denato and Macon Beats we would like to thank everybody who came out to support the show and congratulate DJ & Jessica Football on an awesome wedding.

Come celebrate the release of the Fist Fam EP "Panama Jack" now available for free download on gurpcitysouth.com
So this is the post I’ve been waiting for. Fresh off the presses from those workaholics over at San Francisco branch, The Fist Fam just dropped their new EP “Panama Jack”. This one is a true crew effort with production from Micah Aza, Al Lover, Conceit, and more with features from Big Shawn of Bored Stiff & Brandon B of Trunk Drank. This gurptastic album is 7 tracks deep and once again completely free. Not to mention it closes with their Bay area hit single “S.F. Bay”, previously only available on video (which you can view on the video page of this site). Suffice it to say no one has blended the SF Underground and Down South styles so seamlessly as The Fist Fam. If these guys ain’t drinking & making music then fish don’t swim.

Just when you thought the Summer of Gurpstock was over,we stick the landing with another spectacular catastrophe. As the city council of Asheville manages to anger both sides of the hotly contested debate as to whether hip hop should be allowed at local festivals, the artists of Gurp City South manage to weasel their way into headlining both nights of the LAAF Fest.
Beginning at 2pm Saturday my consigliere & I began our promo mission, passing out fliers for the upcoming GCS show at the Orange Peel, to patrons of the Lexington Avenue Arts Festival while indulging ourselves in liberal doses of PBR & Nathan’s hot dogs. Somehow after 500 handbills dispersed, we managed to keep this pace & arrive at the main stage for the Ville Boyz set at 9pm, with some modicum of respectable decorum (comparatively speaking of course). The VB’s went on to tear the house down with a rowdy yet upbeat hour of music for a crowd of several hundred. Surprisingly it wasn’t until they slowed it down for one of their satellite associates to do a very VH1, Wycleff-esqe, one-man & his acoustic, love ballad that several meat head goons jumped a guy in flip-flops in the front row, simply because the guy’s girlfriend couldn’t be coerced into making out with one of these assailants (so powerful was the impact of this amorous serenade upon the up & coming date rapist). Ironically the violence was ended by the closing of the set with the rowdiest of Ville Boyz numbers “2 Days Til Tuesday” and all was made right in the jungle. My personal joy was such that I continued my celebration with several associates until about 8am. A respectable 16hr bender survived relatively unscathed.
Waking up Sunday afternoon just two hours before my 7pm set with GFE, I arrived back at the festival just in time to dispatch another chili-cheese dog & two beers before showtime. The crowd was sizable & energetic and the set was deftly executed. The highlight for me was undoubtedly being heckled by a homeless person, a remarkable 1st in a career marked with a litany of auspicious events. The bum managed to make his way to the front row to ice grill the band for a portion of the show, sliding his hand across his throat menacingly along with a few other disparaging gestures, before coming side stage & asking one of the MC’s if he could get a verse (yes even bums rap now & they too believe they do it better than you). After his predictable rebuke Evil Mr. Wendall returned to a place of prominence in the crowd & continued to pantomime his disapproval at the free live music. Say what you will about the downtrodden & dispossessed vagabonds of Asheville but they prove time & again that beggars can in fact be choosers.
