For Clark Higgins and Greenhouse affect, internet success at 'being viewed' on the net has been spectacular!
"Well,..its a long time coming" says Higgins "For years,..i didn't do music and really,..i still don't now (Laughs),..i gave up back in 1992,..it just felt like i was running around passing out tapes and stuff and nobody cared,..nobody gave a shit for me and ,..not only that...my so called 'good friends and buddies" around the South Bay would kindly 'advise me' that "my music has gone as far as it can go" - to quote unquote (Laughs)
Well,..i guess they should fucking see me now,..go to google !! (Laughs),...but honestly, my web traffic in like December and November 2008 has really dropped off now,..i mean we were a monster hit back in February and March n all at Google Video Com,...we were kinda like the 'New Darkness" of our time with our own versions of "I believe in a thing called Love" (Laughs),..
ya know,..its kinda sad and pathetic now,..when i run into people back in the South bay or i get the ocaisional phone call how some people or 'everyone' or whuddever 'always knew i was great and how they supposedly "ALWAYS SUPPORTED THE SHARK CLARK DUDE"
Well,..thats a fucking crock of horse-shit,....the truth is is very few people supported me at all ...or even took me seriously for that matter,..even back in 1992 when i was walking around with my new tape cassettes of "White Black Thang" and "People that won't back down" and "Misogynistia",..i would work really hard,..hitting the streets of Redondo Beach,..putting out flyers,..desperately setting up multiple band shows and showcases up in Hollywood at Raji's Club and the Anti-Club....or where-ever,..only to find out everyone was laughing at me behind my back and saying what a 'dick' i am and how i'm a fucking jerk n all,...man FUCK THOSE PEOPLE UP THERE; - THEY LAUGH AT THE SHARK ???
I've done more in my life than 'ANY' of them,..I've accomplished way more than they will ever know or understand,..and alot of this as i have said elsewhere ,..it can be traced back to my very own family,...MY FAMILY THINKS MY MUSIC SUCKS,..MY FAMILY THINKS I AM A FUCKING JOKE?? ..THEY LAUGH AT ME AND THEY MOCK ME,...IT IS THEY WHO HAVE STARTED THE NASTY SHIT CONCERNING ME IN THE sOUTH bAY,..WHEN THEY LAUGH AT ME AND PUT ME DOWN,..IT ENCOURAGES OTHERS IN THE COMMUNITY TO DO THAT TO ME TOO !!,...and that has fucked my whole life !! MY FAMILY CANNOT EVEN NAME ONE GREENHOUSE EFFECT SONG ,...because THEY HAVE NEVER EVEN BOTHERED TO LISTEN TO ONE OF MY CASSETTE TAPES OR CD'S that i have given them over and over,..time and again,...they automatically think that if it is by Clark,..theres no way it can be any good because after all; CLARK DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S DOING,...WELL,..MAYBE THE LESSON HERE NOW AS I HAVE LONG SAID AND THOUGHT IS THIS; MAYBE CLARK IS 'THE ONLY FUCKING ONE' WHO 'DOES' KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING YOU MORONS !!
I got way more talent than ANYONE in my family and now the whole FUCKING WORLD CAN SEE THIS,....THEY'RE JUST A BUNCHA FUCKERS,...THEY WOULDN'T GO TO ANY OF MY GIGS,...i come from a family of ELEVEN PEOPLE,..and rarely could i EVEN GET ONE OF THEM TO GO SEE ONE OF MY SHOWS ?? GET THE FUCK A LOAD OF THAT !! and i remember ...thats what Flipper would say to me,..he would be like "Hey Hagins,..our gigs should be packed,..if everyone in yer family were to show up and bring two people with em,..WELL THAT WOULD BE ALOTTA' FUCKING PEOPLE RIGHT THERE!!" - yeah,..i remember him saying that shit to me and shaking his head,...THIS IS WHY ONLY NOW DO PEOPLE KNOW WHO I FUCKING AM,..TO THINK I GAVE UP ON MY SHIT IS DISGUSTING,..BUT WHAT IS EVEN WORSE IS THIS; to think now that i don't even bother to try or record because i 'ALREADY KNOW' people ain't gonna be interested in it ...
YEAH,...OFCOURSE everyones gonna fucking love me now,..because just like Walter Cronkite once said "People will believe anything if it is on tv",...and boy oh boy; SHARK IS ON FUCKIN' TV NOW-...in a bad way too !!
,..but now,..when i am 44 years old,...WELL, NOW IT'S A LITTLE BIT TOO FUCKING LATE !!
And I've talked to a dude or two in the South Bay who is like "Shark,..you were just too far ahead of your time - ...there is no way we could have known"
Well,..to that i say that is a piece of shit - you 'would' have fucking KNOWN ...if you'd a taken the time to go see more of my fucking gigs YOU IDIOT !!
MY FAMILY has always said and thought that ; "Clarks the little 'baby' of the family" ...
well,..its turning out now suddenly that;
CLARKS THE ONLY MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU FOOLS !!
