So, now that I'm getting back into brewing after a break of about a year, I got a bit overanxious and thought my condo would have a suitable temperature for brewing a simple red ale.

I was wrong.

So, my question...even if this brew tastes like crap because its brewing at 75F, does it affect the viability, etc. of the yeast itself?

Can I use this yeast in the next brew, that I do correctly (mainly, fermenting in my chest freezer when I finally move it)?

Your beer will probably be okay, too. I had a red ferment upto 90F this past winter. The probe from my temperature controller fell out from between the carboy and the heater. It was a little fruity, but well attenuated.

Andrew, yeast like temperature in the 80s. That's where they grow the best. So your yeast should be very healthy. And I agree with Steinhauer.

Good! Now I feel a bit better about being impatient to jump back into the hobby. During this batch I had the big oval ring drop into the wort, and before that my oxygen stone had come lose and blew off the end of the hose.

Frustrating....
