My band has practice tonight and normally I sing but we just kicked out our lead guitar player so now I'm singing and playing and we only have one mic stand and we need back ups.

Anyone have any good ideas for Macgyvering a mic stand?

Find a tall guy, kill him, and stuff him upright.

In a non-sexual manner, of course...

If you have some rafters where you practice i.e. a garage, loop the mic through them and let it hang. Just dont touch them when you're singing otherwise they'll start swinging.

All else fails I planned on doing that I was just curious if anyone has tried anything else.

Get an erection and hold the mic in your urethra, it works. I've done it before, I swear.

I had a similar problem, then I found one in my closet.

Check your closet?

Hmm...I think you might be able to rig something up using a wad of old bubblegum, a quarter, some molasses and a piece of fishing line.

Ooh, I think I saw this on Mythbusters once. For one thing, half the crap Macgyver did was fake, BUT I think we can make this work. You just need...

One gram of pure sodium
A bowl of water
A house, wall, or big rock

Throw the sodium in the water, next to the house/wall/rock. It'll blow it up, and it SHOULD be in the perfect shape of a mic stand.

Or you could, you know... buy one. If you can't find your car, bum someone else's.

EDIT: OR you could build an airplane out of trash bags and twigs and fly to a music store.

That's actually a good idea. Just duct tape the cord to the ceiling.
