Vamity Fair: Cary in the Sky with Diamonds
“The Curious Story Behind the New Cary Grant” headlined the September 1, 1959, issue of Look magazine, and inside was a glowing account of how, because of LSD therapy, “at last, I am close to happiness.” He later explained that “I wanted to rid myself of all my hypocrisies. I wanted to work through the events of my childhood, my relationship with my parents and my former wives. I did not want to spend years in analysis.” More articles followed, and LSD even received a variation of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval when that magazine declared in its September 1960 issue that it was one of the secrets of Grant’s “second youth.” The magazine went on to praise him for “courageously permitting himself to be one of the subjects of a psychiatric experiment with a drug that eventually may become an important tool in psychotherapy.”

This is recycled news if you're old enough. Do people under 28 even know who Cary Grant is?

I no what you mean dude. I saw one of his videos on some VH1 show where they played two of his videos "Sunglasses At Night" and "Never Surrender." I felt old and remember when all the chicks thought he was hot.

Whoever Rikki is, that crack is awesome just for its feigned ignorance. Way clever.

If you don't know who Cary Grant is, you should rent "North by Northwest".
One of the best movies EVER.

Speaking of Cary Grant and Uncle Sid, that's him as Mock Turtle in the 1933 version of Alice in Wonderland. I shit you not.

This thread is much more entertaining if you substitute the name "Amy" where ever "Cary" appears.

"Amy Grant ate shitloads of acid. And it helped...."

It would explain album covers like this one:

And it would make all the Christian music nonsense an ironic tongue in cheek bit. Like performance art that lasts 3 decades.
