How to Install SongEasy on Ubuntu with PlayOnLinux

In continuation of my posts on Performous and formatting UltraStar files I want to introduce you to a program that makes creating song files so much easier - SongEasy. SongEasy is a great tool that helps you avoid creating your song file manually from scratch. You'll probably still need to edit the file in a text…

UltraStar Text File Formatting

In my previous post I wrote about Performous, a great Linux software that lets you have an experience similar to playing SingStar games. I also promised to go more in-depth about the process of creating your own songs. Now the time has come. But first I want to explain some basics of the UltarStar text file…

A Couple of Literary Recommendations

Today I want to recommend you two books I've finished reading recently. I'm quite an ardent reader, and what I apprexiate the most in a book is the depth of its argument. Both of the books I am writing about now have this particular quality. The first one is Kazuo Ishiguro's The Remains of the…
