Hi all,

So I just purchased a used Samson Meteor Mic ($30!) to create some instructional vids that will go up on YouTube for my students to access. I am completely new to the video capture / youtube productions and am learning as I go.
One thing I notice is that good quality audio really makes the video, and I want to get the most out of my little microphone on a very small budget. I am looking for a small stand or desk mount for the Meteor and any relevant accessories. Can you guys suggest a great budget stand / boom / etc.? (It looks like the Meteor has a 5/8" inlet for mounting.)

Note: I already have a pop filter that I am eyeing to purchase and aiming to clamp on the stand I get. My computer is a noisy bastard but it is on the floor next to my desk (carpeted room).

Extra info: I think I'll probably just be using my Windows partition on my MacBook Pro for the vids, but I'd prefer to use my desktop's horsepower if possible despite the hornet fans. I'm sure a shock mount wouldn't go amiss here but this is all out of pocket so, if the vids are successful, I aim to add to my audio quality / accessories down the road. Pre-amp, XLR Mics, studio room, will come when I'm building a portfolio for NPR. =P
