This may be n00b... I was thinking... is there some sort of product that splits ur tone and then remixes them together? So that you could have a dry amp tone with a colored tone (possibly fuzz or chorus, or octaver) on top? I am interested to play around and see what kind of sounds I can get, but running right into the pedal colors the tone too much. Would it be the same as just using my amp's effects loop? I found this:

i think you are refering to what is known as bi-amping. Which is when a guitarist runs his guitar through 2 amps simultaniously, one clean and one dirty or coloured in some other way.

it's achievable and lots of big name guitarists do it

You have stereo-pedals... they split your mono-signal into two signals...
After that you can hook up every kind of effect you want an those 2 signals
Adam Jones (Tool) uses it...

You can even hang a loop-pedal to one signal and play some riff and loop it over and over again and solo over it on the other channel
great stuff

It's very possible. There's the path you can take by using two amps....And there's also using an amp with a parallel effects loop where you can adjust the level of the "wet" signal coming from the effects loops. EVH did this with his phaser, mixing in 50% of his clean signal.

You can also build (maybe buy? I've looked for one) a circuit that can blend in an adjustable amount of your clean signal. I'm planning to put one of these into a Big Muff circuit, and a Phaser circuit.

yeah its completley possible and you can get some awesome tones doing that, even if your not using pedals. it would work a lot better though if you're using two amps, one running dry and the other with effects. you can just use an A/B/Y pedal for that and make it easy, you can find a good one for around $30. I A/B my Rivera 1x12 and Mesa 4x10

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

That is uber interesting! There's no product that mixes the two signals so I can use it through one amp?

Right here...Many amps have this feature built in, like I said.

And building one is relatively simple, if you can use a soldering iron. I can point you towards a schematic/build plan.

Could you please? I'd love to do it with my 5150.

An ABY box should do that. I'm not sure, but there might be some problems with signal levels too.

This circuit layout is designed to be built into the effect's circuit. http://www.aronnelson.com/gallery/main.php/v/Toneys-Album/Buff_n_Blend.png.html
Not sure what this is EXACTLY, but here's another splitter/blend circuit:

You should be able to buy anything you need at smallbearelec.com. Join at http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/ for more in depth questions.

Here's a another more complex circuit...but designed to be built as an external effects pedal:
