Antek_Stalich 5 | 997 11 Jun 2011 #1Well, since we already know who the Great Linguist "The Big Brother Is Watching You" of these Forums is, it will be safer to start a thread on general English grammar matters.Sequence of tenses is my curse, and I think of many Poles learning English. Especially with this becoming that, these becoming those, etc., in past tenses.I would like to write a short story about things that happened in three different periods of time. Let me put a Simple Present script for that:1981. Zbig -- getting attracted to punk-rock already in 1979 -- can see successful neighbours of the Torun based band Republika. Therefore, he forms his own band named Bikini. After that, his band creates a furore at the Jarocin Festival. Couple of years pass and the group gets disbanded.2000's. Zbig, disappointed with the Polish reality, goes to UK where he gets a job of a street-sweeper. And he creates a furore again because he is dancing through his whole 7-hour long shifts while sweeping. It makes him very popular locally, and he assumes the stage name of Ziggy Dust. Unluckily, his popularity makes him very unpopular among the members of British National Front. Due to that, Ziggy returns to Poland.2010. Ziggy Dust recreates the Bikini and begins regular concert tours.2011. Bikini release a video by Yach Paszkiewicz. They are planning the release of their album this year.How to make a consistent story out of it with proper consequence of tenses?Please help.
