Over at Excel, Levi Kreiss and Adam stare at each other and fall deeply in love. I've never seen the like. Levi tells them about the life of a musician, how sleeping on other musicians' couches and being no-account means living hard and building yourself as an artist. Adam heaves breathlessly and adorably, and cannot deal with any of this. The repressed part of his brain that screams constantly for sex points out that Levi is right now on a couch, but he cannot hear it. Felisha brainstorms that she wants the story of the song to be "about how you have nothing, and yet still that can be everything." Felisha remembers fondly how once Chico's didn't have the cowl-necked three-quarter-sleeve in mint, only charcoal grey, and how it totally taught her much wisdom about life. Then Dar Williams's entire back catalog comes in and shakes her like a Polaroid picture, and Laura Love's jailbird cats mount the attack, and even fuckin' Jewel is like, "Forty-five minutes of van life might help, lady."
Adam sums up, spurred to heights of artistic creativity due to the explosion of love in his life and wanting to be good enough, that he's saying that "Nothing can be everything." Felisha and Alla and everybody love it, even though that means less than nothing. Which I guess means "a bit more than everything." Felisha sings "nothing can be everything...from the outside lookin' in " and remembers how everybody was enjoying their Starbucks that rainy day the ATM was out and she didn't have the cash for a Gingerbread Macchiato, and it's not really really cringy, because it's Felisha and she's so cute, just singing and bopping along. I already miss her adorable, doomed ass. Adam loves it. They are all so fun together, it's like they're friends and work well together and respect each others' ideas. But this is The Apprentice! I'm sure next week Alla will be mixing Felisha's Proactive with Body Shop Peppermint Foot Crème and Adam will expose that all of Alla's routines were stolen from the Clovers.
