The Center of the Universe: Murfreesboro, TN

Do you recognize this room? I know I do.
As some of you may or may not know, there are a few Winslows (Tim, Zach, and myself) currently participating in Moustache May. We are not just sporting a moustache for the month of May, we are also documenting it online with about 300 other guys from all around the world. If you haven't seen this site yet, you really need to take a look at the amazing 'staches and the truly stellar photography that the users bring to this Nashville based website. It is to say the least, very, very entertaining.

While ranking and commenting on staches this weekend, I was excited to discover fellow moustache grower McGillbot had posted a picture which had clearly been taken in the living room / venue of our old Winslow house in Murfreesboro, TN. You can see the picture above. After a day or so, I was then further amazed to learn that another Moustache May participant, Henry Daggs, is currently a resident of the former Winslow heaquarters which is now known as House Pride. A collective of musicians and artists just like ourselves are now running the show at the house on Memorial. You can catch up with all their going-ons at

This house is where we recorded our first Winslow record, the Color album. The backyard of this house is also where we filmed 4 episodes of our show KickStickBottleBall which still plays on public access in Murfreesboro.

Those of you that are familiar with our old digs in Murfreesboro should peruse Henry's Moustache May pictures to get a few glimpses of what has become of our place of origin. Check out etcvisitor's profile at:

If you're too lazy to click a link, here is a video from House Pride's YouTube page featuring Henry singing one of his original songs in our old band room. Seems like that room was just meant for making music.

I love this video because I myself spent so much time playing music in that same room.

If anyone else can share stories from the previous lives of this house, we would love to hear them. Leave a comment or email us I believe its fair to say that this house has been a band house for a long, long time and for a while we were very happy to call it home. From one artistic collective to another, we wish much love and good luck to House Pride in their future ventures on Memorial Blvd. in Murfreesboro.
