Watch Brittani Cal-Williamson - RawVegas.tv Girl of the Month on RawVegas.tv

Let's just go ahead and declare: "It's over!"

Ok, maybe the search to find Las Vegas' hottest girl isn't nearly over yet, but the new RawVegas.tv Girl of the Month is a freaking hottie. Meet Brittani Cal-Williamson, a single model who likes to go off-roading, camping, and looks like the kind of girl you could even bring home to meet the parents. Just like Francine Dee. Just kidding.

Anyway, Brittani is our current "chip leader" to win the RawVegas.tv Girl of the Year, which we're not even sure they're doing but they should. More pics below of Brittani.

NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship Red Carpet Photo Dump

All right, let's wrap this all up with some pictures (below) closing thoughts on the NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship red carpet/draw party last night.

First, job well done to Jon Miller of NBC for growing this event to what it is. This was easily the biggest red carpet crowd with the most excitement around it we've seen in the three years we've been covering it. Plus adding GoDaddy.com as a sponsor brings yet another big name mainstream advertiser into the fold (which = good for the game).

Now some random notes: Not sure if it was because he saw Phil Hellmuth talking to the RawVegas.tv crew or not, but Layne Flack couldn't have exited stage left into the party (and by-passed the video crews) any faster than if his ass was literally on fire and the only bucket of water within a three mile radius was in PURE Nightclub itself. / Congratulations again to Vanessa Rousso for landing a spot in that GoDaddy.com commercial with Danica Patrick. Also congrats on rocking a skin tight outfit that revealed a remarkably clear, um, something that rhymes with "mammal doe." / Speaking of Danica Patrick, while not super-model pretty, in person she's definitely better-looking than you'd think. Kind of "take-home-to-mom" pretty. / Jamie Gold had no problem immediately admitting he screwed up on getting a fake tan. / And while Annie Duke kind of makes sense on why she's not switching to FTP, we're still standing by our steak dinner offer.

RawVegas.tv Turned Two

We don't celebrate our personal birthdays anymore. Partly because we don't care, and partly because we don't care.

However we know shit like that matters to other people, so happy birthday  (if that's what you'd call it) to RawVegas.tv, which launched two years ago yesterday.

Perhaps you've seen our little show THE Toke on it before, or maybe you just go there to see porn stars discuss anal. We like to call that, "A little something for everyone."

Anyway, here's one of our favorites from the past year...

Girls in Bikinis Dancing at Tao Beach Also Makes for a Good Post

With poker hottie Liz Lieu's interview and Andrea Tiede going heads-up with Playboy bunny Holly Madison, today seems like it's just one big on-going tribute to the spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran's first bracelet win.

So let's keep that trend going with the premiere webisode of this season's Denise's Endless Summer.

Host of our The Toke and Playboy model herself, Denise Pernula has a knack for finding places where hot girls wear nothing and shake their ass in Las Vegas. This week's stop: Tao Beach.

While it might not be as over-the-top-fall-of-Western-civilization as Rehab, it ain't bad either.

Patrik Antonius to Quit Tennis, Talks a Lot in Finnish

For Patrik Antonius' latest video blog, RawVegas.tv caught up with him away from the World Series of Poker at Bear's Best where he was playing golf with some friends. The Full Tilt poker pro talks candidly about giving up tennis this year, extreme props like Erick Lindgren's golf bet last summer, what he thinks about Daniel Negreanu's golf tips and the rest of the video was in his native tongue Finnish, which sounds Greek to us. Speaking of, Greek singer/actress/model Julia Alexandratou is all kinds of hot. Damn.

Poker Pros Gavin Smith and Joe Sebok Have Their Worst Prop Bet Ever?

Poker pros Gavin Smith and Joe Sebok return today with what could be their worst webisode of Prop Bets ever.

Currently running on Poker Road Radio (Mon - Fri, 11am-12pm), Gavin and Joe pick two horses for a Cap Gun Russian Roullete contest. One of the dudes is a spot-on twin of Jerry Yang.

Gavin, who hasn't gone to bed from the previous evening and still might be a little bit drunk, is top of form. Footage should be up on RawVegas.tv in a couple hours.

Until then, watch the Gavin Gone Wild edition of Prop Bets from last year.

Important PSA: Become a Dermatologist and Set Up Shop in Las Vegas

Like RawVegas.tv's Patrice Hollis and Denise Pernula self-breast exam video, cheap thrills and public service information abound in the video below of some dermatologist named Dr. G fondling the asses of drunk Midwestern chicks screening girls for skin cancer at Tao Beach in Las Vegas as part of Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Apparently Dr. G has been doing this at pools all around Vegas. There's an important lesson here somewhere and we think it has something to do with Dr. G being a genius.

Critics Love Shannon Elizabeth Poker Movie Deal, Which Hits Theaters Tonight

Shannon Elizabeth stars in poker movie Deal with Burt ReynoldsA month after Zak Penn's The Grand stormed the box office by banking just enough to buy-in to the WPT Championship, the poker movie Deal, which stars waxy-looking golden ager Burt Reynolds and features Dancing with the Stars' Shannon Elizabeth (at right) playing a Las Vegas hooker, hits movie screens tonight in select cities, and already critics are rushing to give it praise.

Just sample some of these rave reviews:

"Deal has to take the title of the worst film ever about the game and that includes the how-to videos with Joan Rivers impersonators you see in your Vegas hotel room." - Erik Childress, efilmcritic.com

"One of the most cliche-ridden and generally misguided films of not just the year, but the decade so far." - Brian Tallerico, Deadbolt.com

"Director/co-writer Gil Cates Jr. gives us a by-the-numbers execution of a by-the-numbers story, which would barely be movie-of-the-week material but for Reynolds's 'star power.'" - LA City Beat

"A poker movie that has the dubious honor of being even worse than Lucky You." - Gary Thompson (but not the Gary Thompson?), Philadelphia Daily News

In related news our highly acclaimed screenplay titled Sitting on the Can While Writing This Post just got greenlit. It's set to be filmed this morning, after our third cup of coffee kicks in. Drop us an email if you want to be an extra.

Below is a video of RawVegas.tv's Denise Pernula prettying up the red carpet at the Deal's premiere last night at the Palms in Las Vegas. Maybe it's us but it's like director Gil Cates Jr. and his producers know they made a piece of crap film. Like they were baked out of their minds when they shot it and now are trying to stop themselves from laughing as they try to talk serious about it. Also in the video, card-tossing couple Jennifer Tilly and Phil Laak talk about their non-plans ahead of the 2008 WSOP, and in news sure to delight ex-WCP reader Carl, Dancing With the Stars' lovebirds Shannon Elizabeth and Ricky Schroder Derek Hough say they are getting married in Las Vegas. Burt Reynolds unfortunately couldn't get out of the Madame Tussaud museum he lives in to walk the red carpet.

Jennifer Harman Must Be More Threatening Than We Give Her Credit For...

Apparently many poker pros decided to show up to the  2nd Annual Jennifer Harman SPCA Charity Poker Tournament in Las Vegas because of the threat of bodily harm. From Jennifer Harman.

Audrina Patridge Is Wearing Too Many Clothes

Keeping up with the theme of hot girls this week (and last week and last year and three years before that), below is exclusive video of Audrina Patridge not dancing for the Pussycat Dolls in Las Vegas.

Patridge, one of the stars from The Hills, was billed to perform with the Dolls, but instead she just wore some leather outfit and introduced some of the girls. But the video does have some of the "other girls" in a tub and a big glass doing some PG-13 looking stuff. So not full fledged wood worthy but maybe a little chubber.

Jeff Madsen is a Good Smoker

RawVegas.tv stopped by Evelyn Ng's condo in Las Vegas the other day to shoot her and Lacey Jones rocking it out Guitar Hero III, except replace "Lacey Jones" with Jeff Madsen and that's what you'll see in the video below. You'll also see Jeff Madsen, who looks like a prairie dog to us, pulling a Miss Teen South Carolina (jokingly) when he rambles off continents like Asia, Africa and Europe and calls them cities. Throughout the video, Madsen is for some reason smoking a cigarette in what can best be described as an awkward manner. Seriously, we know 7 year olds who look cooler smoking cigarettes. Sure we have to buy and light the cancer sticks for the rugrats but once they get puffing, they look cool. Because smoking is cool. Unless you're Jeff Madsen.

In related news, we have a crush on Evy.

Svetlana WPT Poker Classic David Benyamine WPT LA Poker Classic Daniel Negreanu WPT LA Poker Classic

So we made it to the Commerce today after a night of relatively moderate bedlam that kicked off at the Library Alehouse in Santa Monica and somehow ended up with us at a Laurel Canyon mansion this morning with a group of Venice Beach trust fund hippies who graffiti'd are SUV rental with Obama stickers.

We'll save that story however for our forthcoming 4-part series entitled "How We Spent the Friday Night Before the WPT LA Poker Classic."

Paris Hilton Skanking it as a Pussycat Doll in Vegas Video Makes for a Good Post?

RawVegas.tv has exclusive video of Paris Hilton as a Pussycat Doll in Las Vegas on her 27th birthday, and we're not sure if it makes for a good post or not. That's what the question mark in the headline is for. It's a literary device to suggest a sense of inconclusiveness on whether seeing a drunk Paris Hilton prancing around in lingerie and doing the champagne glass striptease thing is worth the viewing 'cause it's basically her skanking it out, something we've seen a thousand times.

Make that a thousand and one.

Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi Considering New Career in MMA Fighting

For this week's Toke with Wicked Chops Poker on RawVegas.tv, Dave Farra catches up with Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and David Williams at the first-ever Bodog Fights held in Las Vegas, which saw Nick "The Goat" Thompson submit John Troyer for the win and two chicks beating the crap out of each other.

Williams talks about placing bets on MMA fights, including a $10,000 wager he won off Patrick Antonius at the UFC fight between Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes. The Grinder meanwhile gets all profound about the differences between MMA and poker when he says, "In poker it's mental training, here it is physical training. So it's a lot different."

Breaking: Monte Carlo in Las Vegas Is On Fire

Monte Carlo Las Vegas is on FireFrom RawVegas.tv:

The roof, the roof, the roof at the Monte Carlo is on fire. Or at least the top four floors.

A massive blaze is burning at the Monte Carlo casino right now. We have a clear view from the RawVegas.tv office, where we see black fumes engulfing the Vegas skyline.

Speculation among a few placed calls is the fire resulted from a construction accident. We are waiting for confirmation on that.

The Monte Carlo is now evacuating the 3,000+ room hotel and casino.

UPDATE: They are now evacuating the Bellagio and other casinos on the Strip.

For video coverage of the Monte Carlo Casino and Hotel fire, stay tuned to RawVegas.tv.

Developing . . .

UPDATE: RawVegas.tv is reporting that the fire appears to be under control now. "No more plumes of smoke can be seen from our office or by the bridge where we are filming." They also have a video of the Monte Carlo fire, which from the angle and distance it was shot, kind of looks cozy.

Poker pro David Williams is back doing his video blogs on RawVegas.tv, and for the first one of 2008 he talks about how he spent New Year's Eve in Las Vegas, including partying alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and the Hilton sisters and spending a shit-ton of money with Joe Cassidy, David Oppenheim, Matt "Hazards21" Giannetti and Jean-Robert Bellande, that kind of obnoxious poker player with the French sounding name who was on "Survivor: China."

The WSOP bracelet winner also talks about his New Year's resolution and the correlation between something called "working out" and playing good poker, something that may help explain the year David Benyamine had in 2007.

The Ten Most Wicked Stories of 2007 - Part I

Recovering from a major post-Holiday binger, we're a little late getting to our semi-annual "Biggest Stories of the Year" post. We're taking a slightly different approach this year, and every subsequent every-other-year from here on out, as the stories won't necessarily be the "biggest" of the year as they will be the most "wicked." Or put another way, these are the stories that we liked the most, and from feedback from readers, link throughs, and overall traffic, others seemed to have liked the most. Very scientific.

We'll post the results two-at-a-time because it reminds us of how many girls we used to have sex with each night when we were single.

And for the record, some stories just missing the top 10 include Jamie Gold and Crispin "Don't Call Me Bruce" Leyser settling their lawsuit, the Brandi Hawbaker/David Sklansky relationship, Barney Frank introducing repeal of the UIGEA legislation (and other efforts to overturn the Act), David "The Dragon" Pham* winning Card Player's POY, and Annette Obrestad, a woman, winning the WSOPE Main Event.

10) Pamela Anderson Bangs, Marries Dude to Pay Off Poker Debt, Then Divorces Him. What would any Wicked Chops list be without a hot chick with big boobs? While Pam isn't our favorite poker playing cougar, she's certainly up there. Pam, who has been into poker for awhile, reportedly rang up a $250k poker debt while in Vegas co-headlining a magic act with Hans Klok. To pay it off, she did what any smart girl would do, she banged a dude. We had to dock Pam some points for having to resort to scumbag Rick Solomon to pay off said debt, but she gets a few extra points back for (possibly) mucking Solomon soon thereafter. This relationship was also a boon for sexually transmitted diseases everywhere. Hep, meet Herp. Herp, hep. Good times. Read our first post on it here, and some more news on it here and here.

9) Phil Hellmuth Crashes His Car, Face, Body, Ego Remain Unscathed. After winning his record-setting 11th bracelet at the 2007 WSOP, Phil Hellmuth crashed his race car into a barrier while filming a promotional bit for Ultimate Bet. The crash made headlines not only in the usual suspects of poker forums, but was even discussed on msnbc.com, ESPN News, totalfark, and other pop culture sites. Naturally, some thought it was a publicity stunt which, for the record, we know it was not, but can certainly see why it was viewed that way. Read more about it here and here, watch exclusive footage from RawVegas.tv of the crash below, and Hellmuth's thoughts on the post-crash aftermath here.

People Got Drunk at Phil Hellmuth's Holiday Party

This past Tuesday night, Phil Hellmuth threw a big birthday/holiday party in a Palms fantasy suite. If we were retarded, we'd say it looked "off the chain" or "off the hook" or "was the bomb." The dude with that thing on his chin from Anthrax played, and apparently, plenty of booze was available.

Having some fun at the party included party tour guide Gavin Smith, recent Five-Diamond $5k runner-up finisher Sully Erna, Roland de Wolfe, and Jamie Gold (who provides one of the night's best lines about 3:45 in). Watch below or here.

Wayne Allyn Root Can Talk For 5 Minutes Without Taking a Breath, Wants Your Vote

We wouldn't vote for Wayne Allyn Root. Because we don't vote. Unless they figure out a way to bring Ronald Reagan back from the dead and have the Gipper go for a third term, you won't find us near a "pole" that doesn't have a stripper in front of it.  Unless Hillary of course gets the Democratic nod, in which case we'd feel it was our civic duty to keep the apocalypse from happening. 

Anyway, famed sports handicapper Wayne Allyn Root has officially registered with the Federal Elections Committee and will run for President of the U.S. America as a Libertarian. In the latest TOKE vid, he talks about the UIGEA and what he thinks of Greg Raymer running as his VEEP, something the Fossilman has expressed interest in doing.

Without taking a breath, Root says:

"Maybe we'll see...Greg is a great guy great speaker very intelligent a lot of wisdom and I think when you meet Greg and you meet me you go those aren't gamblers those are professional kind of guys."

Shawn Sheikhan Is Still Around

It's been almost three months since Shawn Sheikhan was arrested and faced deportation to Iran due to a new Homeland Security law that looks to oust convicted foreign national sex criminals.

Since then, the Sheik has done something he's not accustomed to do...go silent. On the advice of his lawyers, Sheikhan is not discussing the case with anyone.

And now it appears that Sheikhan will not be able to talk about the case for awhile, as proceedings are stalled. Launch Poker has learned:

In 1995 Sheikhan was arrested and charged with misdemeanor sexual battery charges, but thanks to the Contra Costa County practice of not keeping misdemeanor files for more than ten years, a U.S. Immigration Court Judge could not tell if he was actually convicted of the crime. As such the deportation proceedings have been halted.

Read the full article here.

While Sheikhan could lose everything if deported, at least he doesn't have to worry about losing a lot on the golf course, mostly because he doesn't wager much. High Stakes Golf wrapped last week, with Sheikhan losing "peanuts," as he was never willing pony up the same amounts as Erick Lindgren, Gavin Smith (who had a bad last hole), and Daniel Negreanu. The big winner for the event was Negreanu, banking over $74,000. Watch the final webisode below.

Denise Pernula Showing Sexy Halloween Costumes Makes for a Good Post

While we wait for Dan Druff's response to Mark Seif's vid on RawVegas.tv later this morning, now is a good time for 2007 November Playboy model Denise Pernula to remind what Halloween is all about. Yes, we know what you're thinking, but no, Halloween is not about the Great Pumpkin or candy corn or stupid kids cutting holes in a sheet to dress as ghosts or how many drive by eggings we did while in high school (497ish).

Instead, Halloween has somehow [miraculously] evolved into the one day a year where girls having a foolproof excuse to dress as slutty as they want...truly making it America's greatest holiday. Hopefully all of your girlfriends/fiances/wives/friend's girlfriends/friend's fiances/friends wives/sisters/co-workers look as good as Denise does in these outfits.

It's been debated on the best poker forums and blogs for years. It's importance has been paralled to that of "how did the universe begin" and "how many beers can I drink and still be under the legal driving limit?"

Who is the best looking girl in poker?

It's time to make it somewhat official. So Wicked Chops Poker (through our show on RawVegas.tv, The TOKE), is looking for the answer.

Here are what we feel are some pretty simple criteria:

1) The girl must have a cash in a major event (WSOP bracelet tourney, WPT, NBC National Heads-Up, etc.),
2) The girl must be hot, and
3) The girl must be hot.

So while these criteria eliminate some of our faves like like Kimberly Lansing, Layla Kayleigh, and shit, even Joanna Krupa, you've still got plenty of good options. For a sport filled with as many fug dudes as poker does, we actually do have a bounty of babes who know how to treat a big stack. From classics like Clonie to Hollywood carpetbaggers like Elizabeth and Tilly, to online hotties like Jennicide, crazy/hots like Brandi, strip poker sultrusses like Erica, and FOWCP stunners like Lacey, Michele, and (on sponsor's exemption) Dee. And we haven't even gotten to Evy, Carmel,Liz or Vanessa from Duke yet.

All you need to do is send your submissions (up to 5 choices) to [email protected] or comment on them below. We'll pull the list of winners and present them on The TOKE in a couple of weeks. Maybe even come up with some sort of award. Why not?

The Pwning Continues

If there's one thing we've learned from this whole Justin Smith Saga, it's never loan Justin Smith money that you can be sued for blasphemy tooken is a new word we should all use never take money from Micon and not pay him back.

MiconActually, unstrike the "never loan Justin Smith money" one. That one still holds.

Micon continues his warpath with his latest recorded phone call, this time urging Smith to tell his tale on RawVegas.tv.

We contacted RawVegas.tv (it wasn't difficult) to see when the Smith interview would take place. Said our well-placed source: "We called the guy, but [Smith] refused to go on camera to tell his side. Guess we'll save our resources to film more hot girls giving each other lap dances or partying in bikinis on Lake Mead and shit. Oh well."

Is the "Saga" coming to an end? Just like that song from Asia, only time will tell...

Listen to Micon's call here. Watch Micon's TOKE again here.

High Stakes Golf: The Sheiky Love Fest Continues

RawVegas.tv's "High Stakes Golf" (aka "The Bash Shawn Sheikhan Show") continues with its latest webisode titled "Hole 15" which we hear took place on the 15th hole.

This week Gavin Smith, Daniel Negreanu and others continue to do what they have done every week, rail into Sheiky for being such a shit. We almost feel bad for Sheiky, except he's such a shit.

Watch the webisode below or head over to RawVegas.tv to view. Also new at RawVegas.tv is a red carpet interview with a confusingly looking-like-crap and wearing-too-much-clothes Carmen Electra and another interview with flame-ous blogger Perez Hilton, which is only worth viewing 'cause the nectarously hot Andrea Tiede is doing the interview. Watch those videos here and here.

Bryan Micon Talks About Justin Smith Swindle, Needs a Shower

While the Absolute Poker insider cheating scandal has been the biggest story to ever hit 2+2, with endless threads active day and night and no end in sight, over at NeverwinPoker.com it's been the story of Bryan Micon getting rolled for 12 dimes by a guy named Justin Smith that has had the forum degenerates chatting ad nauseam.

For the latest webisode of "The Toke with Wicked Chops Poker", Micon stopped by the RawVegas.tv studio in Las Vegas to talk on camera about how Smith, a purported resident of Beverly Hills, purported celebrity schmoozer and purported heir to the Chase fortune, rolled him for $12k and others, including oil heir fattie Jason Davis, for much more. For those who have been missing out on the fun over at NWP, the video is the Reader's Digest version on how Micon has turned the "fuck you machine" on to try to get his money back. For those who already know the story, it's a video of Micon. Hilarity ensues, whether you're laughing with him or at him.

Archie Karas Lost A Lot of Money

Among Vegas gambling lore, there's no greater figure than Archie Karas.

Jack Binion once said he never met anyone with more gamble in him than Archie Karas. And he should know. During a span from around 1993-95, Karas reportedly went up as much as $22-45 million at Binion's playing craps and poker. Karas won millions off Chip Reese...and blown millions back rolling dice.

We caught up with Karas recently to talk poker. Watch the latest webisode of The TOKE below. And after the jump, watch a The TOKE recap of the Shawn Sheikhan immigration battle.

This Video Could Have Been Hotter

We're not gonna lie. The below video of Denise Pernula at the International Lingerie Show is more talk than show, which is kind of disappointing considering it's a video of Denise Pernula at the International Lingerie Show. We're sharing it anyway though because it has its moments, like when Denise (who btw will be featured in the November issue of Playboy magazine) dresses up in a Queen of Hearts lingerie get-up or when UFC octagon girl Amber Nichole, who you may recognize as the model Denise gave a lap dance to as well as the chick sticking her tongue out at Jenny Woo in this post, makes a brief appearance.

Watch video from International Lingerie Show

To make up for any disappointment, check out a dozen or so videos that couldn't be any hotter from the Ultimate Keeley Collection at ZOO Weekly (NSFW).

Marisa Miller Video Makes for a Good Post

Hey did you hear some Israeli guy named Ziv won the Asian Pacific Poker Tour event in Seoul, Korea?

Yeh. Hmmm. Interesting.

All right, below is a video of Victoria's Secret model and Sports Illustrated swimsuit stunner Marisa Miller doing her Vegas Magazine photo shoot at some beach not in Vegas. Strangely, Marisa is wearing a one-piece bathing suit most of the time. Not sure why. Is their a bikini shortage we didn't know about? Did we lose a war or something? Couldn't someone have just given her an iPod to wear? Regardless, Marisa does pull off the one-piece like a frickin' champ.

Warning, Marisa does talk a few times throughout the interview about something we weren't really listening to.

Also be sure to check out Denise Pernula's night out with comedian Pauly Shore (yeh, he's not dead) that has her doing his stand-up routine at the Improv in Vegas. It's proof that a pretty face, nice rack and flat stomach go a long way in front of an audience, especially when you're telling jokes written by Pauly Shore.

Link to video here or watch it after the jump.

WPT Legends of Poker Update Denise Pernula Lap Dance Video

Day Two of the WPT Legends of Poker at the Bike is underway and last we checked Dutch Boyd was the chip leader with $309,000 and Pokerati pal and 2007 WSOP POY Tom Schneider was sitting in second with $242,000.

In other Legends of Poker news, except not related to the Legends of Poker at all, we discovered today that we're not the only people Denise Pernula lap dances for during casual daytime conversations. Nope. Apparently Sin City's most watched online personality also does the chat and grind on hot chicks like current 944 cover girl Amber Nichole, a model with two first names. The video's fun to watch although we have to admit that seeing Denise do her thing with Amber caught us by surprise. Don't get us wrong, we knew we weren't the only people she let chowder topless, but we thought the casual daytime conversation lap dance was kind of our special thing with Denise. Oh well, at least we still have our afternoon Thai massage status meetings to cherish as our own.

After you watch the video below, head over to RawVegas.tv to see the lovely Andrea Tiede work the red carpet at some lingerie fashion show hosted by Lux Cassidy. Who's Lux Cassidy? She's a porn star.

Godsmack's Sully Erna Looking for a Poker Endorsement

And why not? Our favorite poker playing rocker from Boston has gone deep twice in the WSOP Main Event, made a solid run at a Foxwoods tournament, takes poker more seriously these days than touring and we assume his band Godsmack is huge in Scandinavia.

Watch the video below of RawVegas.tv's resident DJ Dave talking poolside at the Palms with Sully Erna about his run at the WSOP this past summer. Or maybe watch this video instead.
