Project: Average Age of the Scene
« on: Sun, 2005-12-11, 12:21:40 »
Hello,

I am a German student of English- and American literatures, cultural studies and media studies. As I am as well a great fan of progressive rock music, I am by now working on a project comparing the Gothic scene with the Prog scene (if there is such a thing). One problem of my work is, that there is no such thing as a study of the Prog scene, while the Gothic scene (at least in Germany) is explored to some extent. If there is literature on Prog, its mostly about the music, a fact which is one argumentative aspect in my work. This is why I am launching some polls in this and some other forums in order to raise some statistical data so that my argumentation which will focus on my personal experiences mostly with the German scene but have some international references as well has some numbers to back it up.

If I can raise enough votes, I may even come back on that subject matter in a later project which could then deal with the prog scene exclusively, and who knows, maybe I will someday even be able to make a book out of it, but that's still just a fantasy.

So, I would be glad if some (or some more) could participate in the polls that I'll launch here. I'll count the results someday in January 2006.

Danke.

There is already an age poll at this forum!

Here it is, allthough this one is more specific, I don't see the need of another age-poll.

Oh, o. k. then someone may close this one. Could you give me the exact link, please?

Danke.

EDIT: Well, thinking it over, I would prefer if you could leave this poll like it is and vote once more, since this poll matches with the other polls on other forums that I have created and the other one doesn't really, since it chose broader frames for the ages - full decades rather than half decades.

So, if you could vote once again in this poll, I would be grateful. Thank you.

Danke.

Well, I am in the race for two votes with my 25 years. But, still feeling young and bright, I choose the 20-25 :P

Years have been changed, so that now, the dates should fit for everyone, with no double covered life spans. ;)

Danke.

Just because you had trouble with it? ;D

Nah, probably you are right. I was just joking.
The sentence had to be like this:
"I think prog is the best thing I discovered last two years (except for my girlfriend)."

In that case you'll be taking it back the minute your head shows a clear mark on top, in the shape of her thumb ;D

Or is it vice versa Rolling Stones style? "She's under my thumb".
