It seems like it’s been a very long time since you’ve heard from any of us. Well, that’s probably because it has been. Either way, I figured that I would enlighten you on the goings-on that I’ve heard about as of late, along with what I’m doing on my current Imperial Expedition.
Lilah’s sugar addiction continues to be problematic, from what I hear. Isaac has had to hide the sugar jar thirteen times since I left on my mission. He has also had to refill it thirteen times after Lilah found it by searching recklessly throughout the house.
All of the gentlemen have complained numerous times about Lilah’s check-ups. Apparently they’re nothing short of terrifying. The only consolation of these ghastly affairs is that you get taffy after she’s finished. I eagerly dread my first physical when I get home…Lord knows what kind of strange infection I might catch in this foreign aether.
Eva has not complained about the check-ups at all.
The Boy continues to be well. He’s currently working on upgrading his automaton dog. Judging from the photographs, he’s still zero steps closer to making it appear lifelike. That thing used to scare the trousers off of me in the middle of the night.
I’ve not heard much from Eva, but she’s apparently been hanging around that assassin Finnegan. I’m still not sure if she can be trusted, but if she’s earned Eva’s approval, then I guess that’s enough for me…at least until she attempts to betray my trust.
I hear very little from Brian, for he is still in London facing off against the evil demon creature that disguises itself as a nanny, devouring children in the night. I have no doubt that with his ingenuity and the Poppins Gauntlet, which rivals the power of the creature, that he will prevail in removing her from our universe permanently. Best of luck, Mr. Myrrh…as if you need it.
Andrew has not blown up the house since I left. Which surprises me, because he often performs his more volatile and dangerous experiments when I’m not there.
Isaac is off in New Orleans at the moment, cruising up the Mississippi in a riverboat and winning a good deal of money. Never a bad thing to have a good gambler around, friends.
As for me, airship life continues to be a tad droll. Fortunately, my scouting mission is nearing its end, and I’ll soon be able to trade these murky skies for the clear skies of Denver City. I will be glad to come home, for it means that the Company can go off and engage in our usual tomfoolery, which of course you will be the first to know of, friends and fans. Stay tuned, because when I return, the fun shall begin.
PS — Nevermind. I just got word that Andrew blew up the damn house.
Getting situated in my cabin in my new location. I’ve been stationed aboard an Imperial airship scouting a planet in Universe 24571-Delta. The world below is covered in dense forests, and we have no idea what sort of life forms occupy it. It’s cold up here in the aether, but I’ve been assured that the temperatures will warm up soon.
More updates as they come.

Q: Personally, I’ve always enjoyed the lion tamers. As a boy, I met the lion tamer of the Circus Traxima, and he told me I should pursue my dreams, no matter what. His words always have stayed with me.
IW: I’ve always loved the carnival games - people cheating others out of their money and not getting mad about it. I mean, take me, for instance. Were we in a bar and I cheated you out of some money, you would be quite upset, and because of the environment, you’d never expect it. But at a circus, it’s half-expected, so one never gets upset at a carny when they pocket your hard-earned money.

Alrighty all, here’s a brand new live video from our recent February 16th show in San Diego California at the Four Points by Sheraton!
More GoPro cameras and DSLRs!
Special thanks to Beth and James Riley of GeekShot Photography for allowing us to use some of their footage in this video!
We do love the sounds of those singing musical automatons. Interestingly enough, Brian plays a mean banjo…and owns a pair of red suspenders.
Could it be…? No…not a chance.

Oh, Inquisitor, you needn’t worry. I, personally will be trying to make it to Watch City, assuming I can find somewhere to stay. The Company as a whole has a scheme to invade Denver Comic Con as well.
At our Meeting of Curiosity and Oddity today, our friend and ally Ms. Eden Roundtree presented a song she had written about us and our escapades! Later in the evening, on a whim, Eden had a friend of ours film a performance of said song on her mobile communicator. The quality may not be top-notch, but we’re proud to present the world premiere of The Company Song. Enjoy!
The Quince & Company Meeting of Curiosity and Oddity, March 2013.
Honored guests: Oberon Quince, Dillon Holt, Sir Isaac Washington, Evaline Kingston, Andrew Winterfields, Dr. Delilah Amadeus, Eden Roundtree, Holly Raptus, Finnegan, Bastion Winters, “Generic George” and Dr. Nohman Macion III.
A handful of Company members, namely Winterfields, Holt, and myself, have found ourselves at a near standstill due to a winter storm. Temporarily separated, we all seem to be in decent health. It may be a few weeks until we’re all properly together though.
Personally, I’m enjoying the weather. Snow is blissful to watch with a cup of tea, and the pause in adventuring is giving me time to put pen to paper. That time, however, is occasionally being taken up by the two women with which I am staying. An old friend of mine, Finnegan, was my host during this trip, and when the storm worsened, she lent her roof to another friend of ours, Miss Jackie Mark, a delivery girl with the unique ability to appear with a letter despite universe or dimension…. The past hours have been spent with their banter echoing through the house, but I don’t mind. It reminds me of the Company home.
