Hmm :) Zi4 xin4 yong3 gan3 de nu3 ren2 hen3 mei3 jiu4 xiang4 shen2 li nu3 chao1 ren2 yi2 yang4 
What can we say...Well, great content
I like the explanation of uei vs ui  how you explain guei and gui  as well as zuen and zun. 
I still that the interest level here could move up a notch if we included sentences like
Qi2 guai4 gua1zi hao3 gui4   or Ta1 dui4 hua2 shui3 mei2 xin4qu4  even Gui3 shi4 guai4  wu4
these include some of the finals introduced here and make it interesting to see and hear the finals in a sentence. I would love to see these video's remade with the same  format as wen bar, crazy grammar and big bang vocabulary . Tone it up is a good name...it just needs to be more dynamic.
Could be easily done...too much pictures and text not enough of real people teaching...which is really the strongest element of Dongyu Offical video program.   A1..........wo3 cha4 dian3 wang4 ji4 gen1 da1 jia1 shuo1  Xie4 xie Lao3shi1  Team Dongyu Offical
It's the 4th of July here.....got to go
Thanks again
An unrelated question:
zai4 xi1 an1 lin2 lin2 zong1 zong1 de ge4 zhong3 mian4 tiao2 zhi1 zhong1 zui4 you3 dai4 biao3 xing4 de dang1 shu3 sao1 zi mian4....is it true, okay to say :)

The Hanyu Pinyin for the number you mentioned should be:
yì bǎi sān  shí sì wàn wǔ qiān liù bǎi sì shí wǔ

When learning Hanyu Pinyin, remember that when speaking in Pinyin pronunciation, numbers are grouped for every four digits, not every three digits like in English. So the number above is 134 ten-thousands, five thousand six hundred forty five. When using Arabic numerals, you would still write it the same as English. So it is still 1,345,645, rather than 134,5645.
