Ok first thing start with a blank canvas that is SQUARE, I used 500 pixels by 500 pixels
Add a new layer, then with a background of white and a foreground of black type the text you want.  It should look something like that one to the left.   Then go to LAYER>DUPLICATE LAYER and press OK.

**Note:  Photoshop 6.0 users and up will have to RASTERIZE their text layer at this point
Then go to EDIT>FILL>BACKGROUND COLOR   make sure it is set to MULTIPLY Now go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set a radius of 2.  Then go to FILTER>STYLIZE>SOLARIZE
Ok  now its gets interesting, go to FILTER>DISTORT>POLAR COORDINATES and select POLAR to RECTANGULAR.  now go to IMAGE>ROTATE CANVAS>90 DEGREES CLOCKWISE
Now press CTRL-I to invert the color.  Then go to FILTER>STYLIZE>WIND and apply the wind filter two times.  Then go to IMAGE>ADJUST>AUTO LEVELS.
Next press CTRL-I again then apply the same wind filter again THREE more times.
Now go to IMAGE>ROTATE CANVAS 90 DEGREES COUNTER CLOCKWISE.  Now go to FILTER>DISTORT>RECTANGULAR TO POLAR.  Pretty weird how that works out huh?
Now to colorize it. IMAGE>ADJUST>HUE AND SATURATION.  check the COLORIZE box Use these settings.

Take the layer just below the one you just colorized and move it above the explosion one. Then Set the blending mode in the layer palette to Overlay and set the opacity to about 75% and there you go!
