▶ hey so when did Youtube add the new GUI ui thing to the playback timeline?

the timeline of an album is graphically represented as tracks
or is that just part of Youtube Music?

It’s a great feature and under utilised – it seems like a frictionless way to embed a playlist & provide almost granular access to it. (It is my guilty pleasure, to actively listen to ambient albums as though they are a 60 minute buffer)

Remember this guy?







The end of the road he was referring to back in 2010 was “four years in federal prison for defrauding investors of nearly $4 million in an investment scheme”



“Legendary” fake sound designer aka convicted fraudster Brice Carrington was back in the news last week:
“Antonio Wilson, also known as “Dr. Tony Mariot” and “Brice Carrington… accused of romancing “black-ish” star Jenifer Lewis and three other women to con them out of money for his phony businesses agreed Friday to plead guilty to a federal charge of wire fraud, prosecutors said.
Antonio Wilson, 57, of Santa Monica, acknowledged conning the women in the plea agreement filed in federal court in Los Angeles, the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement. He was expected to plead guilty at a later hearing.
Wilson, also known as “Dr. Tony Mariot” and “Brice Carrington,” fleeced his victims out of nearly $400,000 that he claimed were investments in his sound design company and software business, prosecutors said.
