1. Create a new image around 500x150 with a "transparent" background.

2. Go Edit > Fill and choose "color", then chose black.

3. Write some large text in white. For this tutorial, I wrote "Demarn" in 60 pt with the font Impact.

4. Go Layer > Rasterize > Type to the layer with the text on it.

5. Duplicate the text layer. Hide layer "text copy" by clicking on the eye to the left of it on the layers panel.

6. Click on the original text layer and goto Layer > Merge Visible.

7. Go Edit > Transform > 90 CW.

8. Go Filter >Stylize > Wind with the method "Wind" and the Direction "From the Right". Press Ctrl-F. Now, go Filter >Stylize > Wind except this time, use the Direction "From the Left". Press Ctrl-F

This should be your final image:

well done on the tut but to be honest with you it sounds like a different angle on a familiar scene if you know what i mean? well i think its quite good up to the final stage where imo the black text on the white kinda takes from the effect. and im pretty sure wont have the s**t kicked out of it like mine did!
