Stylish living and entertaining is fun but why not take some time to entertain ourselves at the style? I went on a hunt for a witty video cast.
I got my answer with Brini Maxwell downloadable video series featuring footage from the original New York cable access show. It is a comedy. Brini’s weekly New York-based television show broadcasts recipes, tips, and information. You can see the episodes revisited on the Web.
To give you an idea of the show, explore a little vintage through the reveal of Brini’s apartment renovation. It is a satire about the DIY home improvement shows. Watch first 03-17 The Big Finish – Part One to be transported in the 1940’s. 03-18 The Big Finish – Part Two is all about vintage furniture and accessories. Take a break and enjoy!

Brini is a man in drag. That’s what makes it so funny. The show has been on local cable in New York for quite a few years before it was picked up by Style. I’d heard of it, but I’d never actually seen the show until it just recently.
