How did you get your PSC nickname?

What is your real name and age?
Carl 47

Where are you from and what do you like best about being there?

What do you do to keep the bills paid?

What do you do in your spare time?
full time programmer- and tumbling classes 6 nights a week offer me little free time

How did you find PSC, and what do you like most about the site?
I can't remember how I found it. But it is a very good relief from application development

If you could change one thing at PSC, what would it be and why?

Is there any other information about you would like to pass on?

How many hours per week do you spend on PSC?
about 5

What other sites, not Photoshop related, do you like to surf?

What tools do you use to chop?

What gets your creative juices flowing, how do you create a masterpiece?
After experimenting with the source and then seeing something and running with it.

What inspires you?

Do you have a system? Does a chop have to be done a certain way following steps or are you a messy chopper and just go with the flow?

What style of chop do you prefer to create?
I love the JGG theme I have going.

Filters, brushes and techniques: Which do you use, and not use, and why?
many of these I simply don't know how to use

When do you know that you have it just right, or is it constant changes up until, or after, you post?
I never know

What is the limit to what you will chop?
no dead babies

Are there any tips and/or tricks that you would like to pass along to less experienced choppers?
I think making a layer semi-transparent to fit it into the correct size and position is the coolest trick I know

What is your favorite type of source image, and why?
I like lots of things in the source

There is often talk about how the source is used and to what extent it should be. What are your views on all sources, outside source use and animations?
As you might know, I attempt to incorporate the Jolly Green Giant in most of my chops

What is your preferred resource for outside source images?
goes without saying (jgg)

In your opinion what makes a good chop?
any chop that makes me say Wow!

Do you have a system to get things started?
I look for a JGG approach then proceed in other directions.

Have you ever completed a chop and then decided not to enter it in the contest? If so, why?
Many, either size constraints or just too busy.

After you finish your chop do you just post it or seek opinions of family and/or fellow choppers first?
Just post it.

If some one finds a fault in your work do you change it or stay with what you posted?
I rarely change my entry.

What qualities do you look for when deciding to vote on a chop?
huh? do I like it or not. Period.

Some member prefer not to vote for filtered chops or animations. Is there any particular style/type of chop you won't vote for?
Most anti-war (anti-america) chops are ignored

Time is always a factor, how much time do you spend on a chop and how much time is too much?
As a non-advantage member I throw an hour or so on each attempt.

We all love to get votes. Now are you a constant vote checker or do you just let it go and check once a day? (be honest)
I just like to avoid the goose egg entries

What chop of yours did not do as well as you expected?
My entry with the Star Trek Bridge, I worked so long on that, and it was met with mediocre results.

What do you consider your best chop so far?
The bookworm entry seemed brilliant to me.

What do you consider your worst chop so far?
I have many 0 vote entries.... so take your pick

Who is your favorite chopper out there and why?
In no particular order, Marco, Micose, Shaman, Anfa

What do you NOT like to see in a chop, and why not?
Anti American themes

What is the best chop of all time?
Anfa's lizard boots

Do you have any other PSC related comments to add?
Just once I'd like to see the Jgg done by others
