Is Crazy Gideon Getting into the Real Estate Business?
Crazy Gideon's crazy videos were always fun to watch with his yelling and the throwing of electronics around his downtown warehouse (never seen them? watch a collection below, they're great).

Ed Fuentes of blogdowntown catches up with Kotzer in this great video.
