How did you get your PSC nickname?

What is your real name and age?

Where are you from and what do you like best about being there?
Glasgow. Born there. Will probably croak there, unless my book gets published and made into a blockbuster..then I will buy an island and catch fish.

What do you do to keep the bills paid?
Don't pay the fuckers.

What do you do in your spare time?
Drown worms

How did you find PSC, and what do you like most about the site?
I cant remember how I first stumbled upon it. But when I did, it was like a voice calling me,saying.." Come on in son,the water is fine"..

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

Is there any other information about you would like to pass on?
Sometimes I may make comments that border on the unintelligable...(I like beer)..and the glorious Buckfast !!

Less than I used to.

What other sites, not Photoshop related, do you like to surf?
Alternative news media.

What tools do you use to chop?
Windows 95

What gets your creative juices flowing, how do you create a masterpiece?

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?
Totally messy and haphazard

What style of chop do you prefer to create?
I like to try and tell a story.

Filters, brushes and techniques: Which do you use, and not use, and why?
A bucket and a big stick.

When do you know that you have it just right, or is it constant changes up until, or after, you post?
When the wife say's.."leave it the f***k alone" !

What is the limit to what you will chop?
There's no limits...

Are there any tips and/or tricks that you would like to pass along to less experienced choppers?
Dont play pool with anyone named after a city..

What is your favorite type of source image, and why?

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?
All's fair in choppery..its the end result that counts.

Roll a a can of beer..

Have you ever completed a chop and then decided not to enter it in the contest? If so, why?

After you finish your chop do you just post it or seek opinions of family and/or fellow choppers first?
Sometimes Mrs Sou makes her point...But I just send her to the kitchen to make me dinner...God luv er'

If some one finds a fault in your work do you change it or stay with what you posted?
If it can be changed,and it helps,then by god I'll change it !!

What qualities do you look for when deciding to vote on a chop?
First impressions are the most important thing for me.

Some member prefer not to vote for filtered chops or animations. Is there any particular style/type of chop you won't vote for?

Time is always a factor, how much time do you spend on a chop and how much time is too much?
I once spent 8 hours solid, changing a jar into an alternative eco-system, with sweeping panoramic vista's of teeming life forms and colours so vivid that mortal eyballs could not appreciate the wonder of its beauty. Then my electricity ran out.

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'm a punter. I like to know how my horse is running.
