Chicknwings is known for his history of abridged interviews, as well as doing an award show for abridgers.
History[edit | edit source]
In 2006, Chicknwings first joined the video uploading site called Youtube after having heard from friends about it. He then began to post video blogs to get a head start on becoming a youtuber in mid 2007. Not knowing what abridging was, he was introduced to the community by the user named TwilightChrono, who at the time had done an abridged series called "Death Note ABP Abridged" with other abridgers such as WhiteAsh01 (formerly known as Frolegend), Semisoma1, MidnightSoma (or now known as MidnightDevont) and Vivimage. He was asked to voice in TwilightChrono's series as a few minor characters, namely people like Lind L. Taylor. After his roles in the series, Chicknwings was kicked out of the team due to some problems that had occured between the group. So he then decided to disband from the team to find more voice acting work. That's when he stumbled across RougeAbridger's Kenshin Abridged. Though still in development, Chicken wanted to help out. So Rogue allowed him to do so. He was then casted as Gohei & Sonosuke. Unfortunately, there was no updates on when progress would be made on releasing newer episodes, so Chickn decided to find more voice acting work. That's when he meet light09, an abridger who was working on a Peace Maker Kurogane Abridged. At the time he was looking for someone to voice as Suzu considering it was hard enough for him to voice so many characters. Chicknwings has been with the character from the beginning to the final episode of the abridged series, and even decided to help out with Light09's new series Aquarion Abridged in early June 2009. However, due to complications with other voice actors that were apart of the series, he soon decided to drop the project after only have gotten half way into the series and decided to move on to some of his own solo work. However still looking for more voice acting work, an abridger and all around good friend Cage500 decided to cast him as Aoki in Hajime No Ippo Abridged. To this day he still does the usual voice over work along with cameos.
Around the time of July 29th 2008, Chicknwings decided to help the community out by releasing "T.A.C." (a.k.a. The Abridged Community), a site/youtube channel that would allow under-rated abridgers to get exposure for their work that only have under 500 subscribers. The site had opened up to abridgers over at it's old Ning.com hosting and generated well over 1200 members. Unfortunately due to Ning having to charge people to keep the websites open, the T.A.C. site would be shut down on August 11th 2010. However thanks to the people over at ScoonySquad7, they decided to help out Chicknwings to create a new site that would be just for updates and abridging news rather then just a social network. With it only to have been up for one year, the site was soon taken down in August 14th, 2011 due to traffic being very low, and no contributors working to keep the site busy. So Chicknwings decided to go with a Facebook page for people to keep up with T.A.C. while checking up on their page.
Aside from the website aspect of T.A.C., the youtube account is where majority of the content is provided. Originally a place he posted the T.A.C. Podcast, he interviews different abridgers from all across the internet. Since late 2008, he's interviewed over +30 abridgers that have since paved the way for future abridgers to come.

Parody[edit | edit source]
LittleKuriboh has created a parody character of Chicknwings named Turkeylegs. Turkeylegs, who is Hayate Gekko from Naruto, hosts The Ninja Community awards and claims to have created ADBZA (a small time Dragonball Z parody actually created by Chicknwings), stating that 'Taking a cartoon and making fun of it' was his idea. He has described Chicknwings as a 'Jackass' because he didn't invite him to be on the panel of 'The greatest abridgers of all time'.
