It's Comcastic! Manipulate and record messages with digital flash-based puppets. All the fun of real marionettes, but without the pesky strings. (The site also features some dexterity tests/games for your mad mousing skillz)

Don't give in to this. Comcast are such terrible bastards. You wouldn't believe how much they charge me for cable internet. The worst part is that, as far as I know, they're the only game in town.

Yeah, but if you just bang away randomly at the right half of your keyboard you can make the little puppet get all noodly, as your own personal tribute to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. (Sorry, I had a bad day at work and I'll take all the lame amusement I can get right now...)

I feel stupid! I didn't even put two and two together... If I can plead ignorance, we don't have Comcast here in Canada, so the name "Comcastic" didn't even set off any warning bells... I just thought it was some cool web dealie... fer honest!

I hate PepsiBlue as much as the next robot, so delete away if necessary!

What's up with everyone being nice lately?

All energy normally put into anger is being diverted to constructing more longboats?

Ok, now I feel kind of bad for snarking, I had a little bit of fun with the marionettes.

Whether or not Comast commissioned it, that was absolutely gorgeous and very, very well executed. I'm impressed, even if I do hate Comast.

It had a pop-up. Firefox blocked it.
I took this as a sign.

Yeah, they lost me at the "Launch the site" link.

Please...just say "no" to virals. At least if you feel the urge to make them FPPs.

You know...with some replayed keystrokes and some video capture, this is a garage band music video waiting to happen.

Another web 2.0 faux-pas: I'm a comcast subscriber, but in order to use the "features" of comcastic, I need to register again.

What?

I know you've been piled on already, but this is not about you - I'd just like to say for the sake of google that:
Comcast sucks.
Comcast is a lousy ISP.
Comcast ate my Dingo.
Comcast rips off customers with bogus charges.

Thank you.

I know you've been piled on already, but this is not about you - I'd just like to say for the sake of google that:
Comcast is wonderful.
Comcast has been a great ISP.
Ninjas ate my Dingos.
I pay less for Comcast than my parents pay for dial-up out in the boonies.

Thank you.
