History and Production
Prior to Gumball99Swell Era (Early 2009-January 2013)
In 2009, before he learns how to edit videos, he enjoys recording audios with a webcam that has a built-in microphone. At that time, he was using a computer running Windows XP.
The same year, he acquired 3 videos, all of which depicts cats, his favorite animal. In 2011, he learns how to use Windows Movie Maker and enjoys using it. Around 2011 and 2013, he made many WMM videos, but he didn't export his videos.
In February 2012, when Tanzim was 10 years old, he discovered the Angry German Kid meme. The first AGK parody he has ever seen is "Angry German Kid Kills Fred... Again" by an influential Slikker known as AngryGermanKid82. While he was watching videos by FRED (at that time, he was a FRED fan), he saw the thumbnail for this video. He watched the episode and enjoyed the part when Leopold gets annoyed by FRED's screaming and he beats him up. He watched popular episodes, such as those by AngryGermanKid82 and TheKewlOne96. That inspired him to make AGK episodes.
From May to July 2012, he makes 11 AGK episodes, which all episodes he made were in season 1, but he didn't export these videos until early to mid-2013 because he didn't know how to export .mswmm to WMV. He didn't have a YouTube account until January 2013, because he was too young to have an account, but after being pressured by his brother and his mother, he started his YouTube account when he was 11, which takes us to the next section.
Gumball99Swell Era (January 2013-Late September 2013)
Before AGK (January 2013-April 2013)
On January 26, 2013, he started his YouTube career, with his username being Gumball99Swell. Before he started his AGK series, he makes rant videos, which were moved to his alternative account, computerzrul2005 (now replaced by Top20EnMusique, a channel that focuses on weekly music charts, now cancelled) due to him getting a 2nd copyright strike after he got a strike in February, but the 2nd strike was removed earlier by counter-claim. In October 2013, he announced that his rant series will be on hiatus. His rant videos were ultimately erased and was only available in his computer's hard drive. He also makes (USER) and (bogus) reaction videos, but were deleted on March 21st, 2014. He also makes question videos, but since August 2014, no new question videos were made and all of these videos were privatized.
Beginning the AGK series (April 2013-September 2013)
On April 14, 2013, he uploaded his first AGK episode, AGK Joins on YouTube. When he uploaded 11 episodes (all of which were in season 1) to YouTube, his episodes were poorly made because of grammar/spelling issues, mangled quality, inferior Speakonia sound (due to the fact that he has difficulties exporting text to WAV audio because he needs to register Speakonia, but he's too young to register it, so he decided to record the TTS voice with a microphone. Luckily, several months later, he resolved the issue), unfinished and clunky AAGK, etc., which are the aspects of his videos that didn't improve with age. Despite these problems, the episodes have positive feedbacks.
During that time, he uploads mock TV continuities and logos, namely Tanzim Channel idents. He also makes a short-lived ask video series. On October 10, 2013, he gets the full version of Sony Vegas Pro 10 without patching or cracking. In late September 2013, he changed his name to Elipick11SucksDick5, which was named for his hatred towards his old enemy, which marked the end of the Gumball99Swell Era.
During this era, in July 2013, he discovered Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which went on to become his most favorite game in late-2013.
Elipick11SucksDick5 Era (Late September 2013-December 2013)
This was the shortest era in his career. He started season 2 with AGK's Pets as the 12th episode. After AGK EP15, he is planning a Halloween special as a 16th episode, but was cancelled due to his computer running slowly. His computer is not working partly because Windows XP is at the end of its life on April 2014. This caused him to halt his series and focus on question videos and other videos. He changed his name to Tanzim K after 3 months.
Tanzim K Era (December 2013-)
On March 21, 2014, he announced that all (USER) and bogus reaction videos will be privatized and eventually deleted. In late Winter 2014, he got a new PC (which originally runs Windows 7, but he transferred his files to a new PC after he upgrades his computer to Windows 8.1.
After he upgrades his computer to Windows 8.1, Tanzim downloads Sony Vegas Pro 12 and puts AGK back to production. He uploaded 10 Downfall parodies to his account. After he aired AGK EP16, he made an AGK poll on what he will make, AGK meeting Animal Crossing villagers, or him making an inappropriate art. The latter was chosen as the 17th episode, while the former is scheduled as a 20th episode.
Tanzim is currently working on AGK EP20 script. While he's working on a script, he uploads a lot of Hitler parodies, as well as AGK fillers, like the one where he watches the Jimmy Neutron Happy Family Happy Hour. His computer is having problems. Because of that, after he finished the script, the making of EP20 will be on hiatus. But fortunately, on July 15, 2015, he finally fixed his computer, so the show will not be on hiatus. He hardly works on the script for AGK EP20 due to lack of ideas and/or motivation, school, personal issues, and busyness. However, he's starting to get ideas, mostly from Tumblr and the series' latest game: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, as well as personal experiences and interests.
At late summer 2014, Tanzim uploaded a remake of AGK S1 EP4, part of his Neo-Classics series. The remake has improved spelling/grammar, better quality, and enhanced dialogues.
Tanzim released AGK's 2014 Christmas at Boxing Day, though not an official episode.
On November 5, 2015, he made a list of cliches used in AGK episodes on Google Plus. His cliche list was then transferred to the Wiki, which was later refined and more comprehensive.
On Christmas Day, 2015, he uploaded an AGK Christmas special. Since then, he decided to forgo a cliche where Leopold didn't get what he want on Christmas/birthday. Originally, this special will be about Leopold watching funny Christmas videos, but was changed for unknown reasons. Also, he was planning to do a Neo-Classic of AGK EP11 (his most popular episode) as a Christmas special, but was scrapped due to his kibosh on a said cliche.
On March 5, 2016, since he's running out of ideas, he decided to make Speakonia rants again, this time, on the last 2 videos. The first one is on GoFags. It received kudos from his supporters. The other one, on Justin Bieber, One Direction, Beliebers, and Directioners, was a different story.
From March 15 to May 13, he was working on his final Speakonia rant on Justin Bieber, One Direction, Beliebers, and Directioners. His rant was more in-depth and even use videos and audios to support his opinion. On May 14, he uploaded his rant to YouTube. He hoped that the video will get thousands of views and more likes. On May 15, however, a person named Laura Rodriguez informed him that there are more dislikes than likes, which shocked him, affirming that the video should've received fewer dislikes and more butthurt comments. He later disabled ratings and comments, but dislikes still increase, recorded on his Video Manager. On May 16, he deleted his rant and uploaded a video saying that the fangirls won the war, but he will still hate Justin Bieber and One Direction. This only gives him more dislikes. On May 17, he deleted his latest video and post a video announcing his retirement. This caused a huge grief among his friends. In May 18, he privatized all his videos, except the retirement announcement video, and was "blacked out." During his retirement period, he spammed hate comments about himself. On May 23, he returned to YouTube to apologize to his subscribers for his disappearance, noting that he was having a rough week fighting depression (he allegedly suffered from a major depressive disorder). He reverts his channel back to its normal look. After weeks of his friends supporting him, he's finally better. This may lead to his retirement from making any rant videos, whether it's Speakonia or voiceover.
On July 22, 2016, he uploaded his second AGK Neo-Classic episode, this time on EP7.
On July 25, 2016, he downloaded Adobe After Effects. The next day, he is taking lessons on how to use the program. So far, he's doing good in After Effects, but the progress was slow due to lack of RAM and available power of the CPU.
Recently, he's uploading logos to YouTube, mostly Indian logos.

His AGK series was well received by many of his friends. Despite its poor quality of AGK S1, it was met with positive reviews.
Here are list of AGK makers who was cited by him as influences:
- Mitch Soh
Parodists marked in bold are his major influences.
- Tanzim was born on June 23, 2001, in Montreal, QC to a father of Bangladeshi ancestry and a mother of Indian (from West Bengal) and Bangladeshi ancestry.
- He is a Sunni Muslim, which is rare among all AGK parodists.
- His name means "issued" in Turkish, though he doesn't have any Turkish descent.
- He discovered YouTube in the mid-2008.
- He's often more active on Facebook than YouTube. His least active account is on SoundCloud.
- He is a huge fan of Animal Crossing and reported that he also likes Earthworm Jim 1 & 2 (for its amazing music (specifically Tommy Tallarico's version), cool sprites and hilarious sound effects), Mario, Megaman, Pokémon and Sonic (all 5 were his childhood games). He also likes old school games.
- He is also a fan of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.
- Sometimes, he uses Animal Crossing references in his videos.
- This indicates that he is one of the few Slikkers who were fans of Animal Crossing, the other was Jayden Montoya.
- His favorite game consoles (from 2nd to 5th generation era) are Atari 2600, NES, Master System, SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, TurboGrafx-16, PS1, Sega Saturn, Nintendo 64, Gameboy, Game Gear, and Gameboy Color.
- He enjoys watching The 8-Bit Guy and thewheatisheat96.
- He was reputedly a fan of Apple computers (mostly the old ones), though he doesn't have an Apple computer. He enjoys the aesthetics of iOS and macOS.
- He likes watching Mac OS X welcome videos since 2011. His most favorite welcome videos were the Leopard and Snow Leopard, which contains the song, Exodus Honey by Honeycut.
- He likes listening to songs and watching music videos (mostly EDM, classic rock and metal, and underrated songs by Canadian artists). He also likes listening to video game music, either original or arranged. He watched music videos on MuchMusic and on YouTube. He listened to songs on Spotify.
- He REALLY hates bad pop music especially the ones by Justin Bieber (his worst nightmare), Rebecca Black, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, and Jacob Sartorius.
- While he loathes Justin Bieber, he finds his latest album, Purpose, less bad.
- He believes that mainstream pop music since mid-2009, in his opinion, is going downhill in terms of quality, but songs will still be good until the mid-2014, where most Top 40 songs since that time are more or less terrible.
- Tanzim's most popular AGK episode is EP11, AGK's Christmas. Despite its poor editing and quality, it was popular mainly because of Leopold's tantrum attack. This used to be his channel's most viewed video, but as of November 2016, it was surpassed by YTP: Fred Gets Blasted While Shopping.
- The song used in AGK intro since AGK EP12 is the instrumental version of The World Is Ours, a song by a Canadian pop band, Eleven Past One, which can be heard on YouTube. He decided to retain the intro music, even when the intro was changed.
- The song used in end credits is originally I Could Be The One by Avicii and Nicky Romero, but due to copyright infringement (he uploaded AGK EP16 with that song, but it was blocked in some countries), his current song since EP16 in end credits is Presenterator. There's a possibility that he will change end credits music on each season.
- Some of his AGK videos were blocked in some countries. 5 of his videos were ironically blocked in Germany, while AGK EP15 was blocked in 16 countries, including the United Kingdom. It is often suspected that the reason why videos were blocked in Germany is because it contains a recorded copyrighted song. The blocking of his videos with copyrighted songs was due to a controversy between YouTube and GEMA.
- Roughly 44 of his videos have copyright notices. The majority of which were Downfall parodies.
- Tanzim announced that a feature film will be made. He also announced AGK EP100, which will also be the series finale.
- He has 2 copyright strikes, and 2 community guideline strikes.
- Tanzim prefers to use REAL or REALISTIC names when making OCs that will appear in his series. For example:
- Adam Joseph Blackfield (English)
- Jean-Michel Blier (French)
- Miguel Pablo Martinez Flores (Spanish)
- Martin Schofer (German)
- Ivano Olimpi (Italian)
- Kristofer Aronsson/Katrin Aronsdottir (Icelandic)
- Hiroto Sakamoto [JP:坂本博人|HB: Sakamoto Hiroto] (Japanese)
- Park Jun-Yeon [KO: 박준연] (Korean)
- Radhanath Damodaran [HI: राधानाथ दामोदरं] (Hindi)
- Antoni Kowalski/Wiktoria Kowalska (Polish)
- Mohammed bin Yusuf bin Omar al-Haddad [AR: محمد بن يوسف بن عمر الحداد] (Arabic)
- Mikhail Antonovich Novikov [RU: Михаил Антонович Новиков] / Yelena Antonovna Novikova [RU: Елена Антоновна Новикова] (Russian)
- His birthday is the same day where Sonic The Hedgehog was first released for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, but he was born 10 years after the game was released.
- He was born in the year where Xbox, GameCube, Wikipedia, iPod, iTunes, macOS, and Windows XP were born.
- He is (probably) the first AGK maker to use production code to identify episodes he is working on.
- He speaks English, French, and Bengali, his mother tongue. He is learning Japanese.
- His favorite colors are blue, red, pink, and purple.
- He has a Facebook, Twitter, DeviantART, SoundCloud, and Tumblr account.
- His lucky number is 5.
- He never uses his last name because he believed that it would invade his privacy.
- He loves watching videos by Smosh and the Angry Video Game Nerd.
- Tanzim announced that there will be the last episode where Leopold is punished with groundings and beatings. The last episode is revealed to be EP62.
- He is 59 days younger than LeopoldXTailsko10120.
- New Leopold Sprite Test is self-explanatory.
- When he rendered his videos, his original format was AVI, but later change to MP4 because this allows short rendering times, faster uploading times, and low size.
- He, along with AngryGermanKid82, are one of the few Slikkers to have uploaded more than one parody in a day.
- Tanzim K hated Go!Animate since February 2nd, 2014. He had a GoAnimate account, which was no longer used.
- Tanzim K used to make (USER) and Reaction videos until March 21st, 2014, where he announced that he will delete all his (USER) and reaction videos.
- He is well-known for making a list of cliches that was overused in many parodies.
- 2015 is, so far, the only year without an official AGK episode released.
- Despite his username, Tanzim now hates TAWOG.
- Since the mid-2013, he was the target for accounts made to impersonate him. The original perpetrator is QueenZeppelin, but since QueenZeppelin is inactive, Shajjha Maquina, who is a Wiggles fantard, becomes the imposter perpetrator.
- Starting on February 19, 2016, he is housekeeping and removes anything related to ********. (Hint: A person who quits AGK and focus on Anime)
- Tanzim used to love tween-to-teen media when he was between the age of 8 and 11. Examples of these media include Disney Channel movies (like High School Musical), most teen sitcoms, and most teen pop songs. He is steadily losing interest in them after he embraced more mature media. With the added interest in Animal Crossing, he has completely lost interest in teen media.
- Despite people liking his season 1 episodes, he, looking back at these episodes, disliked the episodes. This is one of the reasons why he makes Neo-Classics remake of old episodes.
- He used to utilize Bandicam to record screencasts, but recently, he migrated to Camtasia Recorder. He cited slower frame rates (even in 60FPS) and larger video size (due to AVI format) as the reason why he moves to Camtasia Recorder. Despite Camtasia Recorder working fine, sometimes, he has problems with recording in frame rates higher than 15, likely due to lack of GPU and significant RAM.
