In September 2011 he uploaded a video showing his home where he talks about his new house in Klingon, wearing a klingon costume(2). There are only few pronunciation mistakes, but the klingon grammar is absolutely correct, including very new words released in the same year with the release of paq'batlh. He writes that he created the video "with some help". In a Facebook message, he mentioned that the text was translated by Robyn Stewart. (3)
