Look, I’ve hesitated to write about my obsession with Martha Stewart’s instagram up until now because it just doesn’t seem like something a serious composer/conductor should admit to (much less a 31-year-old man period) but she just dropped 3 pictures that perfectly encapsulate the mainÂ categories of her online persona. It’s like she was begging me to provide the commentary.
#1:Â Poorly Lit Pictures (nothing a flash can’t solve!) of Expensive Food at UpscaleÂ Restaurants that Make theÂ Food Look Disgusting
For those who like this, I created an entire Pinterest board devoted to Martha’s forays into food photography.
This post is also part of a bonus category:Â Unintentional Poetry. (Martha frequently flirts with the haiku.)
#2: Selfies with Celebrities Who Seem Like They Should Be Way Outside Her Social Sphere (which I presume includes only Charlie Rose and Michael Bloomberg)
#3: Martha Doing theÂ Domestic Goddess Thing We Know & Love Her For

Â Homegirl’s done Time, and she’s not about to waste the rest of her life punctuating and capitalizing. For someone so wealthy and so prominent, it’s refreshingÂ to see an online presence thatÂ hasn’t beenÂ totally manicured and byÂ herÂ PRÂ lackey.

In between her meal and the opera, THIS IS WHAT SHE POSTED:
