Most of my thoughts in the order that I thought them while watching the second season of She’s Gotta Have It S2 E3: #LuvStings on a cloudy, rainy Sunday afternoon in Southern California during Memorial Day Weekend while sitting on my pink, velvet couch.
For the slow folk: SPOILER ALERT!!!!!
I love the black/white photographs that open every episode. It’s very Love Jones, which I’m sure was inspired by something else. I don’t know the original source. Forgive me.
Nola’s bed reminds me of the throne in Game of Thrones.
She’s quoting Zora again. I need to go back and read Their Eyes Are Watching God.
“Love is a motherfucker” is also a Love Jones allusion, no?
Black corporate chick at Ear Wave has amazing highlights.
Wait. Mars is still living with Nola? I thought she kicked him out two episodes back.
Poor Nola. Break-ups are hard. The break-up clean up is the worse. Her lil’ Erykah Badu headwrap is cute tho.
Jamie blowing up Cheryl’s phone for what? I’m with Cheryl. It ain’t about the kid, why are you talking to me?
I love Michell N’degeocello. I was thinking from the last time it was played that I should listen more. But it’s so sad. And I ain’t sad anymore. Maybe I’ll save for next time?
Damn. Mars ain’t got two dollars? Bruh.
Wait. If Mars had money, why he ain’t pay for the iceys?!
Nola so damn dramatic. LOL. Sitting up in the therapist’s office with her sunnies on.
Awwww. Nola is so sad. I want to hug her.
I love the therapist’s distinction about not getting over, but getting thru. Random: I interviewed Vanessa Williams once, about a new show she was doing, but also just about life and living. She’s lived. She was the first person to say that to me in a way that I could receive it.
Nola is killing me with all these principles about her work when she is behind on bills. Look, you not tricking! You’re selling art so you can afford your life and not move back in with your parents.
But why is Jamie stalking the wife he cheated on? Like… you ain’t want her, Bruh. You didn’t think anyone else would either?
LOL is Cheryl calling her own name during the sex? How Greer.
Cloirinda’s old white man talks to her like sh--. And then she gonna take it out on the new balck girl? This chick is such “a piece of work”.
Mars sleeping in the vestibule? No. He lost the spare key too? C’mon, Son. I’ll give him credit tho, he’s a doof, but he can come thru with some emotional connection. Dammit. He got hard.I spoke too soon. WTF? No control.
Nola’s at Ear Wave with the corporate chick. No one wears that necklace in corporate America. Okay. Maybe Auntie Gayle.
So now Mars is moving in with Opal? This boy ain’t got no homeboys? How is this living off women thing so very acceptable?
The Amber Rose looking artist is dope. Wait? Is she an actress or a real artist?
I love that Shemecca is working at Ursula’s salon!!!! Ursula’s the homie!! (I only mention folks I’m proud of.) Also, for the uninitiated , Ursula used to be Rihanna’s hairstylist.
I wonder how many women have these stories about their ass shots. I swear for God, the first time I watched this, I thought Mecca was going to get her ass re-upped. I was so mad. I exhaled when I thought it was a raid.
Also, I would never get my ass done by someone whose ass looked like Lady May. Like you don’t have a proper sense of proportion for you. How can I expect you’ll have it for me?
Is Mecca’s cry a exhale or a “I ruined my life” cry? I can’t tell right now. Or is it something else?
Oh, hey. That’s lawyer Terry from Power calling from the Vineyard. He’s the one who left Tasha high and dry. I’m still mad at him for that.
Nola needed some good news. Good for her. Like, I’m happy for her. And she needs the money.
NEXT EPISODE: Season 3, Episode 4
