The Blog of Scott Hansen » Overcoming Creative Block I do not know what to write. I am sitting here staring at the screen, running sentences in my head, and turning my music on and off.

The original evil parts come from old China and its fox lore (introduced to Japan between the 4th-7th centuries CE). The newer tamer parts, such as the big belly, belly drumming, giant scrotum, and sake bottle can be traced to late Edo-era Japan (18th-19th centuries), while the commercialized benevolent parts (promissory note, straw hat) emerged in Japanese artwork around the beginning of the 20th century.
