Do NOT try to make sense of the movies in relation to canon. Trying to do so will only result in frustration and tears. Turn off any part of your brain that deals with logic and just go with it.
In Lord Slug, Frieza and Super Saiyans are mentioned but no one’s been to Namek yet, Goku can’t go SSJ but can do Kaioken, and Piccolo is alive… !?!?!
I like to think all of the movies (except BOG) are all connected in their own messed-up AU.
I don’t think Goku is necessarily sexist. He’s just a jerk who is so lost in his own thoughts, desires, and feelings that he often doesn’t take other people into account (men and women) even when they are obviously upset. He has this assholish behavior the ENTIRE SERIES (linked are only a few examples out of many). Goku is a very literal-thinking person who sees a problem and seeks solutions regardless of the ethics behind said solutions. He isn’t evil because he doesn’t intentionally hurt other people, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a jerk. It was tolerable and even cute and amusing when he was a kid.
We tend to let little kids get away with more because they’re still learning basic social skills while developing their emotional intelligence and empathy. They have a lot to learn!
But when he’s an adult and still behaving like this, I just want to smack him.
^ I love Goku, but this was very satisfying. ^ The guy deserved to be smacked 100 times over during the series because of some of the crap he said/pulled.
But I think this behavior is a big part of his character. While in some ways he gets older and more mature, in other ways, he NEVER grows up. It wouldn’t be Goku if he wasn’t bluntly and unapologetically saying unfiltered words off the top of his head.
He is actually the character that baffles me the most. He seems so simple but strangely enough I find his simplicity complex (and thus he’s very interesting). He often unquestionably does things just because someone tells him to (examples: listening to whatever his grandpa taught him and in filler eps listening to whatever Taopaipai tells him to do). On the other hand, he often couldn’t give a crap about what you say or feel because he’s going to do what he wants no matter how much it hurts you.
He takes things SO LITERALLY (marrying Chichi just because he promised to even though he initially doesn’t want to - conflicting between two things he tends to do: doing what he wants vs. doing what someone told him to do). He can quickly understand physical concepts but doesn’t seem to understand or care about the emotional cues of others. He has a difficult time picking up on or having interest in anything less than DIRECT and CLEAR communication. Subtle verbal and emotional cues tend to be completely lost on him.
HE JUST KILLED TWO PEOPLE
LOOK AT HIM SMILING GLEEFULLY OVER THIS AS BULMA STANDS STUNNED AND DISTURBED. He completely ignores her expression, her tone of voice, and her words. Still smiling as if she wasn’t upset at all, he changes the subject. This can be seen as Goku being a bit of a creep but he GENUINELY JUST DOES NOT UNDERSTAND nor does he care to.
But this is only one side of Goku’s character. He’s still a GREAT GUY AND A HERO. He’s just a bit of a jerk on top of it all.
All in all, I think Goku CAN be sexist and say some sexist things, but he’s an equal opportunity jerk.
I got a new job, it is AMAZING, and while I usually give 110% to any job I have, now I am giving more than ever BECAUSE…
YEARS ago I had wanted this job but I thought it was IMPOSSIBLE for me to get so I gave up on it. A little while ago, I applied for a position in another department (expecting something TOTALLY different than the job I work now) that was related to my past job. Something happened to make my resume end up in the hands of the person in charge of THE EXACT JOB I WANTED YEARS AGO AND IT WAS OPEN. HOW DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN. One day I got a phonecall asking if I was interested because they saw my resume. HECK YES??? It’s like all the planets aligned, someone waved a magic wand and POOF HELLO MAGICAL JOB OFFER! Only after I got the job did I get a gist of THE COMPETITION I WAS UP AGAINST FOR THAT POSITION. AND. WOW. JUST WOW. WHY DO I EVEN HAVE THIS JOB? HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? WHAT IS GOING ON?????
Because I am giving SO much of myself to this demanding job, I haven’t been spending as much time on Tumblr or the internet in general. But I’ve been thinking about art a LOT. When I finally settle down a little so I’m not so exhausted everyday after work, all I want to do is art every second of free time I have.
I decided to make you this much deserved award!
Thank you so much, Mad Dog! This was so sweet of you to make. Let me just wipe this tear out of my eye… ;^;
I love how Nyancat is flying out of Vegeta’s ear as if his head was filled with poptart kittens and one of them managed to escape. And there’s Snoop Dog welcoming it into this brave, new world!
Dragonball & Vehicles DAY 30
Son Goku and Piccolo
The last one, and how can I end this without paying homage to the best filler episode in all of Dragonball Z.
I hope you guys enjoyed this little series. For me, it was an excuse to get me to draw some vehicles, while drawing characters that I love (well, maybe not all of them). I’m sure I’ll make a book out of these sometime, but for now you can just view them on here.
Thanks again, and have a good day! ;D
LOLOL THIS IS SO COOL I LIKE IT! XD
I did buy ALL of Sailor Moon recently. I won’t start watching it right away because my new job is really intense (but fun!) and has been sapping most of my energy the last few weeks. Also, I still have commissions to finish!
I haven’t been active much on Tumblr or the internet in general lately because of these things…
Dragonball & Vehicles DAY 24
I got one day to do the rest of these. Will I make it? Probably not. :/
Majin Buu! Pretty awesome! Although Super Buu is probably where the awesomeness ends. Once he starts absorbing people he stops being amusing. Still… ice cream, though.
Yes, thank you very much! I need to get back to updating ask-raditz but I’ve been having too much fun drawing other characters lately! In the meantime, I suggest all Raditz fans (well, pretty much all DBZ fans) check out ask-bardock-and-raditz. Its humor is great and the artwork is fantastic!
As for the first PM you sent me in addition to this one… thank you very much, anon! You’re really too kind. I’m too embarrassed to post that one but just know that I really, really appreciate your kind words. ;v;
So, my girlfriend’s situation has taken an unpleasant turn lately, and I’m trying to help her out.
She’s had her food benefits cut unless she fulfills some conditions that are ridiculous for her (she’s disabled, though she’s having trouble getting the govt to recognize it now), and the people who are supposed to be working with her aren’t, even within her family. Her grandfather was supposed to take her fulfill one of those conditions today, and he literally forgot he needed to be there to drive her. He left the house before her alarm even went off and was gone when she woke up. This means that she probably isn’t going to be able to eat starting next month (and this month is already tight, because they reduced what she gets).
I would like to be able to bring her to stay with me ASAP. However, my own and my family’s financial situation is far from ideal right now. My father has been unemployed for an extended period and we’re basically living on gifts from family, which is enough for us to get by, but there’s not much extra.
So. A train ticket ranges from $73-144 dollars. However, I also need to raise enough to try to feed her for as much as a month, and I’m not exactly sure how much that is, but probably $100 dollars minimum.
I didn’t want to bog down this post too much, but for more information about the situation, go HERE.
Unfortunately, I lack drawing ability, but I want to offer people something in exchange for help. Therefore, I’m opening up writing commissions. Here’s what I’m offering.
Pricing: $1 for 100 words. Open to some negotiation. If you want something and just can’t afford anymore, I won’t turn you away out of hand. But this also is for a specific purpose, so I can’t do it for nothing, either.
Payment is paypal only.
What I can do: Fanfiction is my specialty, so to speak. I will also do original stories for you.
— For fanfiction, my fandoms include, but are not limited to: Princess Tutu, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Welcome to Night Vale, Vocaloid, Touhou, Gatchaman Crowds, Marble Hornets, Child of Light, and Adventure Time. These are just some big ones. If you want something else, feel free to ask.
— I will write any pairing! I will also do AUs. Pretty much whatever, really.
— The only thing I won’t do is smut, just because I’ve never written much and can’t guarantee quality.
— For original stories, just give me a description of what you want, and I’ll work with you to bring it to life. I have the most experience working with fantasy.
Now, full disclosure: it’s been a while since I’ve done major writing. However, this is an emergency situation, and it will be my number one priority! If you have any questions, please contact me.
As always for this kind of thing, even if you can’t donate, reblogs would be appreciated.
Please help my friend Jenny and her girlfriend. Jenny is such a lovely lady and her girlfriend needs dire help. :( I recommend anyone who needs any creative writing done to commission Jenny. She’s a fantastic and thoughtful writer (keep in mind her fandoms but please ask about any fandoms you’re interested in to see if she’s familiar with it).
To help, I’m offering $10 sketch commissions (I imagine it’ll be something like the color palette challenges I’ve been doing, but you can pull up any art piece I’ve done in the past and tell me “I want something like this”). I draw almost anything, but I will not draw porn. 100% of all proceeds from commissions I do will go directly to help Jenny’s girlfriend.
