Extreme Agression

Hmm, I keep telling myself that, yet I regularly seem to manage to make a progression from 25 NL to 400 NL to ????NL. So watch yourself, it can become addicting. I don't play for a living, I play for entertainment. My bad mind tells me that it's money I'm up, so go ahead and chase my losses.

For the aggression bit. It's easier to be the aggressive player. You are always putting the other person on the defensive. If they want to raise you, they are risking more of their chips that you don't have a hand. When I'm in an aggressive style, I don't mind when people play back at me. If they do, I only really need a hand approx. 1 out of 3 times or so to 'break' even. When they don't play back at me/fold, I win money.

There's not much you can do. If he's really killing you like this, tighten the screws a little bit. And value bet the heck out of him. Also note that he will float light, but not bet when he hits a card. So it seems that you can trust his raises post flop.
The advantage players like villain have over guys like you, is that after 2-3 hands that deal you a bad beat to his, he can take advantage of it when he actually does get a hand- as evidenced by the 3rd hand you described.
Honestly, my advice to you would be to just find a new table. Even though he is TOO aggressive and will likely leak a lot of money over time by playing this style, aggression is tough to play against, whether it is the right amount or too much. There is a reason why all winning players advocate aggressive play - because it forces opponents into making tough decisions. While maniacal play can definitely be countered, it is much easier to play against passive players. So if you have the option, just change tables. I am assuming this is at the lower limits where you have a choice of many tables.
My advice- chill. Poker isn't a battle of the egoes, there is no rule that says you have to win a hand vs. this guy. If you can't play back at him without getting sucked out on, don't raise pots into him. Sounds like he'd do the betting for you if you ever hit a hand.

The TT hand was fine, looks like you got your damage control right after the turn. Coulda been much worse for you.

The AQ hand- can't comment unless I know how you were betting postflop.
