check out the Random Number Generator. there's a few good demos on  teh youtubez, and a sweet layout on DIYSB

A bit crusher project will definitely be happening, but I don't have anything ready yet. In the meantime, have a look at Tim Escobedo's PWM. This is probably where I will start on my own project.

Reminds me I do have an unverified RNG layout.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Or an Uglyface, they get pretty nasty. The MXR Blue box without the octave down sounds like a Supernintendo FUzz if you get bored with a plain old NES.
