If Japan is indeed a senior citizen state, then Bill would reason there's strength in her hands. Looking to mine, I see a pair reaching for 90 yet ever careful to fold her 1 cm2 plastic pack of medicine in half before disposing of it in the plastics-only trash bag. "Life is so hard," she smiles. "Why bother?" Because it's what we're here for. She recognizes that; it's healthy to rib it and make sure it's still breathing. No diggety.

Indeed, Japan's median age is only pushing 40, so no need to put her to sleep, aight? Still, the advancement of time makes one reflect. Ex-Cibo Matto starlet Miho Hatori is still a sprite, but she reminsces over the sweetest and sourest... and brings it up to speed. "A Song For Kids" recalls life talks with ma, pa and even that fisherman. Her solo debut, Ecdysis, is a Japan-only release, but NYC heads who missed her in August can peep her tonight:
