"I walked into the door, and it’s a small office. It’s way past closing time and Hunter S. Thompson says, ‘Lieutenant!’ And I don’t know why he decided to call me ‘Lieutenant.’ He then went on to tell Johnny that I was the only person he feared — which made me feel great. And we became close friends in a weird way. He would call me from Denver at five in the morning. He would say, ‘Marilyn. Manson. Brian. Shit-eye.’ ‘Did you just call me ‘Shit-eye?’ What does that mean?’"
