I love a bargain -- and I enjoy re-purposing items.
There's a store downtown called The Reject Shop, where they stock various discontinued items and food that's near its expiration date.
They had a iPhone holder that mounts with a suction cup. It's supposed to be for your car.
(That's a calculator: I don't own an iPhone.)
But, I saw it, and realized that it would actually work well as a microphone holder.
The bananas are a counterweight. I hadn't taken off the protective coating, so the mondo suction cup didn't work as it should -- sticking it to the laptop case.
For five bucks -- totally worth it.
