Once you admit "This is so true but my heart and body keep telling me otherwise no matter how much I say it," it's maybe 30%.It keeps going until you're living it and it's not even a belief anymore, it's simply an understanding.Last Thursday, I was faced with an important decision.I'd seen Avatar in December, but really wanted to see it again before it was out of theaters. On one hand, Tyler coming to San Diego is a rare experience.Anyway, I highly, HIGHLY recommend you go to the RSD Free Tour in your area. And now that Avatar's gone, there really is no excuse.DAN I thought this would have been just for people who had just stumbled across the RSD website, and didn't know what the company was. The Free Tour was not only a great warmup for the Hotseat two days later, but was great in itself. He knows that there is a novelty to learning something new, but that it will be forgotten if not used right away.Back in 2004, when I first met Tyler, I got to witness him blowing a lot of dudes out of set and tooling them, all with his wicked comebacks and backturns. His amogging today is not as funny as it was back in the Project Hollywood days, but it's ten times more vicious.Tyler's 2004 amogging was like a Rey Mysterio wrestling match, with him doing flips in the ring and dropkicking larger opponents as if they were rag dolls.
If you understand the concept and actually believe it, then maybe 20%.
After his speech, he moved into showing his in-field videos. I was more than a little skeptical about how these would look, given A) Most in-field videos are shit, B) Tyler's been in a relationship for quite a while. He began with a clip of him catcalling a hot brunette that had stepped into a cab, and was about to close the car door. If there's one recurring theme in the footage, it's that women seem to have some compulsion to wrap their legs around Tyler.
I don't know how he does it but it seems to happen in almost every clip, whether she's by herself, with friends, or in a mixed set.
You know approval from strangers doesn't matter just as you know the grass is green and the sky is blue.
When you hear Tyler explain something in a new way, especially after he's experienced some new things, you get it to "click" in maybe 10-15% more at a time.
