Scriabin,

What is your opinion on Russia?
Turkey must get out of NATO. NATO must get out of Kosovo-Serbia. Croats must get out of Crajina. All muslims must get out of Christian and Jewish land. Turks must get out of Cyprus. Turks must get out of "Istanbul". "Palestinians" must get out of Israel. Israel must become independent from USA.

Yes, I need advice please.

I have to hand in 2 courseworks by tomorrow, each around 1000 words and I don't know what to do. At the same time I have to had in an ICT project in on Friday and I have at least another 10 hours of it left to go. Any idea how I should methodically complete everything, or most of the stuff. I can't think, my head is clogged up.

I know that, that is pathetic but I really don't know what to do. I always miss deadlines.

Scriabin,

What is your opinion on Russia?

Russia changed in 1917 for the worse.  Tzarist Russia was infinately superior to Commusnist Russia.  Russia once had a huge and prosperous middle class.  They used to produce Great Art, Literature, etc.  Now what do they produce?

Rubystars is right.  We all need to be able to tell ourselves, "No more internet today.  I have work to do."

Sounds like you're a procrastinator.  So am I.  The best thing you can do at this point is to try and calm down.  Stop thinking so much.  Instead, focus on your breathing.  Take long, slow deep breaths and breathe into your belly.  Your belly should expand and contract as you breathe.  One thing to remember is never hold your breath.

There's only so much that can be done at the last minute.  Don't waste your time with frantic over-thinking.  Correct your thinking and breathing and you'll have good results.

That is Alexander Scriabin.  

I am a musical fanatic and a musical snob.  I hate junk music.  I love the Beatles, but let's face it, they aren't worthy of shining Beethoven's shoes.  

Scriabin is dear to me because his music is so unique and because he was such a fascinating character.  An oscar-winning movie could be made about his life.  The soundtrack is already finished.  I venture to say that Scriabin was the most original and the most imaginative musician who ever lived.  

His compositions are consistently of the finest quality.  His calligraphy was perfect.  He wore the finest clothes wherever he went, etc.  

Now, was he a saint?  No.
  
He was an adulterer, a blasphemer and a bad father.  Still, my musical passions are such that I cannot help how I feel when I listen to his music.

I guess that I call myself 'Scriabin' because I want to promote his music.  I think that he was a great composer that deserves to be heard.

Thanks for your question, Lubab.

don't you agree that some composers under the tyranny of Stalin wrote great symphonies/chamber music and so on?

Of course, but I can only Imagine what could have been.

There has been an overall decline in Music, Art, civilization and culture since Beethoven.  Did Communism play a role in that decline?  Probably.

Still, most of the great Russian Stalinist-era composers lived in America or at least, outside of Russia.

I disagree.
I don't think Communism is the cause of this.
It is the industrial revolution, and the fall of the Feodal System.
Beethoven actually advocated far-left Napoleonistic policies himself...

You are probably right about the industrial revolution.  I do know this, however.  A delicate artist like Scriabin would have perished under the Bolshevik regime.  Its a good thing that he died in 1915. 

It is interesting to note that all of the Communist-era composers are insensitive, thick-skinned, angry paranoid types like Shostakovitch, Stravinsky and Prokofiev.

Beethoven may have had left-wing beliefs, but his music is non-political.

Thus he was a leftist, against the monarchies.
Mozart was a free-mason.

Haydn was working for the Esterhazys. That's a difference.

Music and art are never un-political.

How can Music be political? 

Paining and sculpture?  Yes. 

Literature?  Of course. 

But music? 

Explain to me the politics of Beethoven's piano sonatas, string quartets, symphonies (save number 9)?  I'm not speaking of Words and music.  That's another matter.  But again, it is the words that are at fault, not the music.
