Barry Kerch quotes

  • The sound of madness is life. It's waking up in the morning to your alarm clock, your kid crying for you, hearing the sound of the city, it's everything. Madness isn't necessarily a negative thing, it can be a positive thing. You know, hearing them cry for you, if you have children, is a great thing, it's your child.

  • A lot of people have a hard time living out of a suitcase, being on the road constantly in different cities. For us it's just kind of what we do. You do get homesick. I miss my wife, I miss my home, I miss my dogs, I miss my kitchen, which is something I like to do outside of this is cook. You miss the simple things. But when you look at the big picture we get to see a crazy amount of cities and the people we get to meet, all over the world it kind of makes up for it. It makes you realize how lucky you are because it could be gone tomorrow you just never know.

  • Hopefully we can be a band who has a career like U2 or Aerosmith or somebody like that but that's very far and few between. We're happy to be where we are at now, so it's a gift, you gotta just keep pushing forward. For all of us it's very easy to be out here and do what we do, easy in the sense that it's a gift but it can be difficult at times.

  • I don't play a lot of instruments so when it comes to the song writing process I don't have a lot to do with that. A lot of times it's just acoustic guitar and a small riff that produces a song. Ultimately you want to write a song that people are going to enjoy and that you love to play, most importantly you have to write it for yourself first.

  • We're a little bit competitive and we want to make sure we're on the top. We're all working for the same goal as all these bands, we want to come out on top and I think we have accomplished that in a lot of ways. You want to keep improving yourselves and getting better at what you do.

  • Happy bridegroom, Hesper brings All desired and timely things. All whom morning sends to roam, Hesper loves to lead them home. Home return who him behold, Child to mother, sheep to fold, Bird to nest from wandering wide: Happy bridegroom, seek your bride.

  • Experience has taught me, when I am shaving of a morning, to keep watch over my thoughts, because, if a line of poetry strays into my memory, my skin bristles so that the razor ceases to act.

  • Every morning I wake up and thank God.

  • When we have accepted Jesus Christ, we have become akin to the Father; having become real children of God, we then have the spirit of sonship by which we can come into His presence and make known our wants in a familiar way.

  • It is remarkable how easily children and grown-ups adapt to living in a dictatorship organised by lunatics.

  • Sport is how poor kids from poor countries pass through the eye of the needle to riches and recognition.

  • Television is a constant stream of fact, opinions, lies, moral dilemmas, plots: an infinitely complex and sophisticated torrent of information. How could it not make you cleverer? The only people who ever thought television rotted the brain and made kids dumb were those with a vested interest in other ways of learning, or those who were intellectually insecure, usually about books.

  • I watched so many movies when I was a kid, and I'd watch them over and over.

  • The great joy of doing 'The Daily Show' for me is that I get to sit on the fence between cultures. I am commenting on the absurdity of both sides as an outsider and insider. Sometimes I'm playing the brown guy, and sometimes I'm not, but the best stuff I do always goes back to being a brown kid in a white world.

  • I'm one of five kids and we lived on a massive farm in New South Wales with my mum and dad.
