Because Gay Literature is important.
We did this shyster last week.
Why're we doing him again this week?
This is the 40 year old with silicon in his buttocks
Some serious fuggos olds and poors on his Insta.
My 10 year old car's tires have more life to them than that flat ass @R7.
Why was the other thread closed? It wasn't full, except with his ego and ample pec muscles.
Do gay men in every profession have to be whores just to get attention? Can you look professional -- and not like a rentboy -- and still merit attention for your work/art?
R10, please link to any DL threads that are about average-looking accomplished artists. Please!
Does this wannabe actually put words on paper?
I'd like the grasping OP to give us a paragraph or two.
R10 A lot of bottoms will try and show as much of their body as possible. They're doing it for male attention, like women.

He’s a fairly talented writer, at least so far as his long ago blog “London Preppy”. Filled with insecurity, ego and cock.
He’s aging in his latest pictures. A pity....Greeks can be well preserved. But he’s nearing 40, and we all go through that.
He’s still much hotter than all the posters on DL.
R20: slightly critical but overall adoring and rated as superior to ALL.
Hi, North! Didja get those titties sucked while getting barebacked fucked last weekend?
Are his tits fake? There’s something really off about the shape.
And that book (and its title) looks like shit. The cover is awful!
Cute as a button, but humility is not his middle name!
Those are real pectoral muscles. He was blessed with a wide chest, and worked hard on them, I'm sure.
He certainly didn't work very hard on his "novels."
You can practically smell the insecurity and narcissism.
It's kind of fascinating, really. It is like a microcosm to the stereotypical life of an aging gay man, l desperately trying to hold on to the beauty he has left.
R22 no,no.....North looks better than all DATALOUNGE posters.
Admit it....you’re a fug.
People who look like North are a common in West Hollywood.
And how many photos of DataLounge regulars have you ever seen, R20 R27?
Any of you that you'd care to link, Mary?
The obvious hatred and envy of good looking gay men is completely apparent on Datalounge.
Good looking people don’t to tear down hotties. They consider good looking gay guys as the same tribe.
I see Miss North has found this thread at R29.
Hon, you cannot write FOR SHIT.
But he can definitely show off dem titties!
R27 R29: No photos, ugly closet WeHo homo, vociferously defending a complete stranger, who's his circuit "author" hero.
R32 “circuit author hero”? Oh my sides.
Admit it. You’re jealous.
And R30....I agree that North’s writing, in his novel, has been bad.
Jealous of what, his vapid life of gym, snort, write for an hour a week; gym, circuit party, bareback sex, rinse, repeat?
No, dear. I had my fun and survived.
Have any of you read the novels of Steven Cooper? Another gay novelist. His fourth book was recently released... he doesn't have a shirtless instagram account and didn't detail his sex life in a blog, so no one may know who he is!
R36 nobody on DL cares. Steven Cooper may be a good writer, but he’s not shirtless, not young and not as attractive as North Morgan.
Hence the shrill jealous old queens are not interested in VOCIFEROUSLY judging him.
Don't you dare mention other authors in this thread about me- er, the handsome prolific North Morgan!
Does anyone have a pic of North’s hole?
This great novelists social media is like so many authors. Have you seen John Grisham and Stephen KIng's Instagram photos? Both shirtless and hanging around with other shirtless male writers.
Gorgeous guy, not a surprise to see bitchy comments. But those should be used on genuine dickheads.
Hot photos r41. Where'd they come from? 😏
He's a good writer as far as his blog posts go. They show a lack of humanity that could be studied. Not sure about his novels, having never read one myself.
R43 you must be new around here.
The majority of his Amazon.com "reviews" are from people who've only reviewed one book, and some shoes.
Sock puppet fans or his meth-snorting pals in WeHo.
#1,126,249 Paid in Kindle Store; what a hit!
Why so bitter R46? I see no news stories or personal confessions from North about meth snorting or HIV.
Your vociferous hatred is making you sound deranged.
And your pathetic cheerleading for mediocrity is inane.
Text on a screen doesn't "sound" like anything, North, er North "fan."
You/he need(s) a copy editor.
You are hilarious R48
Please embarrass yourself further
You are insipid, R49
Please learn English grammar and punctuation.
I’m not one all bunged with hatred at this random guy.
Why are you so bitter? Do you have any love in your life? How long has it been since anyone has touched you?
You are very invested in this conversation, aren’t you R51?
I’m not one all hyped up with slathering smug praise for you, er, I mean your favorite novelist/circuit slut, R-every other post.
Why are you so obsessed? Do you have any love in your life? How long has it been since anyone bareback-fucked you?
Do you expect utter silence or sycophantic praise with every reply?
If so, you're on the wrong website.
Do go on R54.
Do you feel your blood pressure rising?
OP/R55: "Pay attention to ME! No, don't pay attention to me."
Make up your mind, narcissistic dullard.
Your circuit whore's books are shit.
I don’t deny that North’s novels are bad.
But that’s really is not the motivating factor for your venom towards North, is it R56?
You want what North has, don’t you? It’s as plain as day.
Envy is unattractive.
Poor OP; comes to self-proclaimed "bitchy" website, then reels in horror when people are actually bitchy about his jackoff no-talent un-celebrity.
I haven't seen any full nude photos of North. I know that would make me appreciate his writing far more.
That is a nice dick.
R58 you’re not contributing anything valid to this thread.
All “meth” this, and “HIV” that.
If you want to scrawl your demented fevered imaginings, then don’t surprised that other people call you on it.
To quote your pathetic attempt to mock me, OP- R61, aka every other post on this thread, aka North Whoregan himself, "Oh, my sides!"
You came to this website specifically to get attention for this guy/you, then shriek in horror that anyone DARE to poke fun, and when his nearly illegible reader book reviews (obviously penned by his illiterate circuit pals) are linked, you go crazy.
The only one "calling" is you, OP, you and your snide inconsistent smug praise for this mediocre writer and gym addict, oops, I mean, YOU, dear Northy.
Love the tits! See ya on Grindr, whore.
I’m the one who’s going crazy R62?
You really think I am “North Morgan”?
Oh my sides!
I would pity you, except that I have a cruel sense of humor.
And yet, you permanently park your ass here, desperately waiting for attention, to angrily defend your "author" and his vast superiority to anyone.
Go have another cocktail or five in WeHo, Mary. You have yet to acquire a sense of anything, let alone humor.
Why are people paying attention to a 40 year old circuit queen?
You’re hostile and confused R64. There there....shhh.
I have said, multiple times, that North’s writing was not good. That he is aging. That he’s insecure.
But your hysteria and hostility about North is quite out of proportion . You are jealous that he had sex. You are jealous that he has a long term boyfriend. You are jealous because he is attractive. Your venom is not going to change that.
Why don’t you have a cocktail in whatever hellhole you live in. Or five. Whatever it takes.
Forget about North. Forget about your life, for one evening.
You're triggered and sociopathic, sad OP R66.
Defending this thread like the inane little fanboy you are, as if it were your little hobbled together fort of pec worship, you can only mimic other's posts, because you have no original thoughts at all.
You also defend a hack writer whose hero is sociopath Bret Easton Ellis.
Good company, OP, the North Morgan-obsessed sociopath.
You're obviously new here, so here's a tip: You don't run things.
And you're stupid.
And you run things on Datalounge R67? You think you are that important?
^ OP, the North Morgan deranged fanboy: a desperate sociopath....running out of gas.
Where is the link to his RentBoy.com profile?
R69 you are a loon. Nice balloon gif. What else have you got?
I have to go to bed.
But you keep jealousy stewing over your nonsensical hatred of North Morgan, a guy that doesn’t know your alive, and wouldn’t care if he did. Your obsession with him is sad and pathetic or stupid.
"I have to go to bed." - Your dildo is calling.
"Your obsession with him" - types the crazed fan who STARTED this thread.
"doesn’t know your alive" - my alive what, illiterate douchebro?
"Oh my said" - Said what (see above)?
Can both of you just shut up? Jesus Christ.
Does he actually have a long-term boyfriend? It's difficult to tell from that Instagram.
R73 sorry. I know that this has been ridiculous, but I just couldn’t stop prodding Mr Asshole Gif.
R74 The last time that I looked at North Morgan’s Instragram, he had pictures of his boyfriend and a link to his boyfriends blog. They were obviously a couple.
R75 do you have permission to start threads? If not, I’ll gladly start a thread which is devoted to Steven Cooper.
R76: oh please do re: Steven Cooper. TIA.
Gurl needs to keep her shirt on.
Lazy bitch needs to stop skipping leg day.
"I know that this has been ridiculous..." - OP aka R76
Yes, OP, but your lame droning Aspie-esque defense of this guy is more sad and guileless (more words for you to look up, or tattoo on your leg, perhaps).
"The last time that I looked at North Morgan’s Instragram (sic)" = five minutes ago.
Admit it, OP/crazed fan; you're obsessed. You're also a smug, droning undeservedly elitist nobody. You should copy-paste all this for your/his next "satirical" novel (which will just be a snarky roman a clef - Hey, another word for you to learn).
he had pictures of his boyfriend and a link to his boyfriends blog
Really? Because I went back ten months and found no pictures of this Steven guy on his IG, or any pics of him tagged. There were several pics with the 'brettburbach' guy tagged, however, among others.
Ah, you’ve woken up R82. Or the Bedlam attendants have granted you access to a computer.
I’m not the OP. I first posted at R20.
You are the one who read North’s Amazon reviews, and then searched the reviewers to find out that they’d only reviewed shoes before they reviewed North’s books. Really...and you’re calling me obsessed?
I don’t really care about North’s books, but I did enjoy his London Preppy blog. But I have enjoyed needling and prodding you. Such rage at someone you don’t supposedly care about. You will never have North’s life. You are just an ugly man, inside and out. Deep down, you agree with me. You don’t deserve love.
Who don’t you block me, if I so offend you?
Keep projecting your own ugly bile, R85, if that gets you through the day.
And do keep up with your slathering adoration and feeble attempts at insults, Mary. It shows your vapidity.
And no, cunt, I don't agree with you on anything. You're a smug little cunt, worshipping a no-talent circuit cocke-snorting narcissist.
Enjoy your vapid WeHo life, cunt!
R84: " The prose of this poem brings a tear to my eye. "
Prose is not a poem, idiot.
R84: "Books are so decorative, don't you think?"
"You will never have North’s life. "
And neither will you, hollow sociopathic tool.
R85: a sociopathic obsessed fan defending a sociopathic muscle Mary circuit author who tattoos quotes from a sociopathic author of psychopathic murder stories.
One could surmise that Morgan has only posted here pretending to be a fan, simply because his slimy hero Bret Easton Ellis has done the same.
“A sociopathic muscle Mary circuit author”
Oh my sides!
if i ignore this hack writer. will he go ...away?
"I'm a naked social media activist I do this for you here's my ass give me money"
Just beautiful. I see why you like him so much.
R92, good enough for him to tattoo on his/your ass?
The sad thing about his "fans" like OP, etc., is their glaring failure to differentiate satire from life lesson.
Being a sad attempt of a bitchy hateful cunt, as R85 tries to be, only prove their ineptitude in taking any lessons from such "literature." They see it as a handbook.
"What don't you block me?" I think that was supposed to be Why, and the answer is the same when gazing upon a wallabee in a zoo; because you're funny to look at.
Such sour sad souls. (That's called alliteration, Northie-fan illiterates.)
Ace Era is hot R93
But he’s a sad troubled soul, at least according the DL thread about him.
You are a sad troubled soul, but you’re not hot. A terrible combination.
You are jealous. Of North. Of people who have friends. Of people who are willingly touched by someone....anyone.
Cunty, the only thing worse than bad sentence fragment poetry is when it's typed by a hypocritical prissy bitch nobody like you. Prove you're hot, hauty phaggotte, or STFU.
R95 There, there......shhhh.
Rest your head on my breast....
Girls, girls. Stop it this minute. You're both miserable, smelly, rancid cunts!
R97 my apologies for this total derailment of this thread.
But I have to dump gasoline on this burning dumpster fire at R95
Yes, do threaten violence, bitch. That's the last resort of the inept and inarticulate.
R99 it surprises me, with you deep grasp of English, that you wouldn’t recognize a metaphor.
Tsk tsk....since that is your only claim to self esteem...
It surprises me that you feebly attempted the use of a metaphor.
Will you have it tattooed on your leg, too?
You can do much better than that feeble riposte R101
Can someone start a new part two thread? Without these two? Then we can go there and leave them to bicker.
Nauseating isn't it R104. But there are plenty of good cock shots in this thread so let's keep it. Just block those two screeching harpies!
This 'screeching harpie' posted those nude photos, cunt.
You're welcome, cunt.
northmorganPut some bbq sauce on that
brettburbachHow could you do mike so dirty like this tho??
Is he the Steve Grand of gay novelists?
^ I fucking love that Instagram account.
R12 that means he was either on opiates, or he had a flash on his mobile phone camera.
Good lord. This is what passes for gay "literature"? It's superficial crap that wouldn't get a B in a high school creative writing class.
northmorgan Do you know when there’s a hot guy in the gym and you walk past each other and half a second later there’s a draft of air that’s caused by you two crossing each other and for just one fleeting moment you can smell his body scent? That moment that holds all the pathos, all the lust and desire and the immediate despair that you feel knowing that this is the closest you’ll ever get to this guy and his scent and his body, and now he’s gone. That moment, times a million. INTO? / Out May 22 2018
Yes R113....I had that exact same experience, in the real life, at the gym two hours ago.
North is the voice of a certain segment of the gay male population.
OK, R114, I've had that experience in the gym as well. Nevertheless, this still seems like dreck.
"the voice of a certain segment of the gay male population.
Yes, vapid WeHo queens with body dysmorphia, who, by the way, don't read books.
or the unused name of a generic porn whore.
It’s almost here:

Oops sorry, didn’t see r113 before posting...
No, North. You didn't see. you were too busy copy-pasting your shitty prose to try to make your shitty "novel" happen.
So, "Out May 22 2018," which means we're going to endure half a year of self-promotional hype from this circuit queen as he pretends to be one adoring fan after another.
I for one look forward to the inevitable additional dick-pic leak that will drive up more business. Yes there's some old ones, but we want to see it as it is TODAY, after the treatments and penis pump.
Yes, R122! "To have no talent is not enough."
Poor lamb R121....how can you bare “endure half a year of self promotional hype from this circuit queen”?
It must be hard for you, living with such artistic degradation all around you. You are so courageous.
Brave, stalwart R124; defending the Golds Gym literary greats on a gossip website with feeble attempts at sarcasm. what a hero!
Okay, who among us is gonna pony up the membership to his Only Fans page (assuming that he is not fucking with people)?
Obsessed troll, you seem to most likely to be setting aside a portion of your social security check to find additional North’s cock shots.
R127 aka OP, aka every single other post in this thread.
Obsessed troll, thy name is OP, aka the haggard has-been circuit queen who will die alone.
Being an obsessed fanboy isn't going to make anyone like this shitty books, OP.
I have no plans to purchase his novel any time soon, but North (is that his legal name?) certainly is a sexy man who possess one Hell of a big, gorgeous behind. I am certain that he has pleasured many, many dicks with that dumpster.
Well R128? Are you going to spend the money on North’s Only Fans page?
I’m impressed you know how to operate Imgur....most mentally deficient people can’t do that.
R130, the resident North Morgan fan troll, is easily impressed by 30 seconds of copy-pasting and screencapturing.
That's obvious, since he thinks this muscle mary with a fake name is a worthy writer.
Keep it up with the deluded feeble attacks on others' presumed age, North, er, North "Fan." It's really helping you win over the DL crowd.
"I struggled to finish the book, but I did manage to finish reading it at the end. It's an average read, neither great or exiting. It's a story I recognise and see far too often in London and probably copied from other books.
"I personally would not recommend it.
"I did consider purchasing this book on kindle, but luckily it was lent to me, so therefore I saved my cash."
I am instantly turned off by tats and smirking selfie-egos that have an empty neurotic need to take pictures of themselves all day long, but I can't deny his innate sexual appeal. But I find 40ish men in still good shape in a 40ish body much more sexier than 20something hardbodies. And he's got awesome loins. Love those lovehandles on his side. He's a man with just a hint of boyishness in his face, still hanging on to baby fat. Adorable.
The ego, however, will always be the deal-breaker for me.
Am I wrong R131? I’m certain that you receive most of your income through Social Security: either because you’re old and/or disabled. It helps to explain your irrational rage and bitterness.
Anyway, if you want to put up a GoFundMe in order for you to access North’s Only Fans page, I’d be happy to contribute. My only condition: you must use your Imgur skills to post whatever is behind his Only Fans page and then discuss what your thoughts are on this thread.
The thought of you simmering in impotent rage at North’s body, friends and lifestyle will be delicious.
"Am I wrong?" - (R134, aka OP, aka the droning obsessed North Morgan cheerleading squad of one)
On all counts, Mary.
Funny how your typing is as dull as the author's. What a coincidence.
No one below the age of 65 uses “Mary” to refer to other gay guys.
Oh my sides!
No one below the age of 65 uses “Oh my sides” to refer to anything.
Do you a Google alert set up for “North Morgan”, or do you just have the various North Morgan sites (Instagram, his Amazon book reviews, etc) bookmarked on your computer?
How often do you check North’s sites? Daily? Hourly?
Please, we want to know.
"Please, we want to know. " You and your multiple personalities, each one a dullard.
How is it you regale us with North’s news so constantly?
After all, you did give us North’s X pics. What else has your obsession with him sniffed out?
Dancing is good for your Mind and Body:
If I walked into that shot I'd do the trope of pushing North to the side while I jumped in his daddy friend Mark's arms. EXCUSE ME LESSER SHORTER ONE WITH THE PSEUDONYM
He does have good taste
Ooh, OP/Northie R138 R140 got triggered again! So insistent! So demanding! Another tantrum. Tsk tsk.
That's good, R141, R142; pretty (contrived) pictures for the baby. Calm it down vwith piccies of itself.
I simply asked you a question R144. Which you have avoided answering, but we all know what the story is.
And do you really think that all the posts on this thread are from North himself? That’s unbearably sad. You are delusional.
I think we see where North fits in, based on his position in that picture
OP/R145; the obdurate sociopathic fanboi, pushing 40.
R147: double anal?
I’M sociopathic R149?
Oh my sides!
You hope that North is answering you on this thread, because, in your greasy mind, it is the only way that you’ll have contact with him. Your impotent, raging jealousy/ longing desire are obvious to all.
"I’M sociopathic" - (OP, the psychotically obsessed North Morgan fanboiqueen)
Yes, dear. You're deranged, unhinged, obsessive, nuts, cray-cray, and a narcissist.
You're also running out of new words, just like the pedantic no-talent "author" you worship.
Face it; North Morgan's self-obsessed. His constant need to create bucolic Instagram poses with circuit pals and selfies proves it. "Love me! Adore me!" Sad.
The fact that this very thread shows up on the first page of his fake name search results proves that someone as self-obsessed as he/you would show up on this website.
You only post on this thread.
You are persistently, arrogant, angry, delusional, and smug, just like the fake-named awful author North Morgan.
You write terribly, just like North Morgan.
You can't bear any criticism, just like the bug-eyed HIV-positive whore North Morgan.
You repeat yourself often, like a brain-damaged whore who worships sociopaths and psychopaths.
You/he has tattoos of quotes from a novel about a serial killer.
You're an easy target, too, just like your has-been hero, Bret E. Ellis, author of 'American Psycho.'
You're him, and even if you're not, you might as well be.
But don't worry, "North." Your terrible writing aside, you have a pretty cock.
That was delightful R151!
That post was a psycho magnum opus!
More more more!
^ R152, aka OP, aka the bottomless pit of narcissistic neediness, aka sociopathic whore.
R153 even your non objective statements are incorrect.
I’m not the OP, I first posted at R20.
I have commented on many more threads than this one.
And I’m definitely not North Morgan.
Are you on psychoactive medication? Because you definitely need it.
Are you on psychoactive medication? Because you definitely need it.
Wow! the sexual tension between you two is insane.
You guys need to meet up and get a room - for a week.
R155 I doubt the obsessive troll is up to my physical standards.
In fact I’m sure of it.
But don't worry, "North." Your terrible writing aside, you have a pretty cock.
That linked pic says uncut.
I don' see no foreskin!
In 10 years, who’ll care?
Correction; in 10 minutes, who'll care?
OMG! This rowing back and forth between you two has been going on since October!
R160, proving that: nobody else cares about this whore,
...and that I'm right: the only person other than me this interested in the circuit whore author poser is the circuit whore author poser.
God! The EGO!
You obviously care about him R161.
You care about him quite a lot.
R163: "Pay attention to MEEEEEEE!!!"
You two could have both written a North Morgan style novel in the time you've been wasting typing insults at each other.
Think about it!
North is a mediocre writer R165
He's no doubt copy-pasting this all for his next vapid tome.
"Troll: the epistologically-penned story of a narcissistic writer whose nude photos get shared online. His quest to vanquish all traces of mocking gossip and nude selfies leads him down a rabbit hole of deceit and treachery, in between artfully staged sunset selfies and frequent snorts of cocaine.
"Like my books, only with bigger cocks!" - Bret Easton Ellis
"Who the fuck are you?" - Dennis Cooper
"Epic!" - David Foster Wallace's rotting corpse
“Pay attention to me”....Is that all you’ve got R164?
Are your psych meds kicking in?
Oh, R168, do fuck off. You're tiresome.
And you oughtta know about meds, coke-head.
Your Google and Imgur skills are quite amazing.
Please, you show us more.
I have empathy for him. While he is too private to share this, what you don’t know is about the life-changing illness he suffers from. See, since about 14, a rare skin condition has made it impossible for North to wear a shirt for extended periods without suffering severe pain. It is only through god’s grace that he has been granted a good body.
He is actually raising awareness for this sad condition through every photo he posts. He likes to give back.
This thread has certainly been.............interesting. Just a wild guess, but North will never ever be on The New York Times® Best Sellers list, nor be a name that anyone outside of very limited circles will recognize (Instagram perhaps being his largest circle). He certainly is cute for his age, but I can not find anything else to say about him. R151 lands the triple axel in my book. Que Sera, Sera.
Fucking hilarious ^^^
There goes the belief that gay men are good dancers. That looks like Tai-Chi-ercize. I've seen little old Chinese ladies in SF parks with better skillz.
That body is perfection. Just enough beefy muscles and not covered in those vile veins bodybuilders usually have.
One can tell a lot about a man's romantic technique by how he dances.
So, these ones are slumping lumps of inept nothing.
No Bob....these guys are athletic and they don’t have any bodyfat.
People are far more likely to give them a try, rather than fatties who bust some moves.
There's a reason they never allowed white people on "Soul Train" and it's on full display at R173.
they don’t have any bodyfat.
North has his share of body fat. I believe there is a 4-pack trying to get out.
Not that I'm complaining. I rather like his body type. Beefy, a little "fluffy," but not sloppy.
This of his Instagram on 8/16/17 and he has a 6 pack and cum gutters R180.
I suspect that he is constantly vigilant about his food consumption, otherwise he'd blow up like a whale.
When is his porn video with the Raw Fuck Club or Treasure Island coming out?
As much as I make fun of him, I'd think he'd pick a classier studio, like Bromo.
North would be a huge hit as a bottom over at Machofucker!
Wow, he is looking old as fuck.
What the date on that picture R189?
I'd say a minimum of 10 years ago.
North is still hot, but he's more mangina than boypussy.
He looks like he aged 10 years.
R192 here. I was referring to his recent photo on Instagram. He looks like he’s in his late 40s. I guess it’s that frenetic partying lifestyle.
“Sean Cody” before 2014 is a “literary influence”? How in the hell is gay porn a literary influence? He’s even more vacuous than I thought. He also listed the “NFL Scouting Combine”. Is this supposed to add a “butch” appeal? Usually, when a good writer cites literary influences, they might list Shaw, Ibsen, Tolstoy, etc. North Morgan lists Sean Cody, but pre-2014 only. This has to be a joke. Also, how is Sean Cody different in pre-2014 as opposed to today? It’s all the same.
(See how LITERAY I am?)
There are thirteen piles. Choices are quite predictable really: Franny and Zooey - JD Salinger; The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath; At the existentialist cafe - Sarah Bakewell; Nausea - Jean Paul Sartre; The tunnel - Ernesto Sabato; Bright lights, big city - Jay McInerney; The major works - Oscar Wilde; The outsider - Albert Camus; The secret history - Donna Tartt; Post office - Charles Bukowski; The beautiful and damned - F Scott Fitzgerald; What we talk about when we talk about love - Raymond Carver; Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov
Lulz at R161
North is aware that he's ridiculous
However, that has limited shelf life
And the "sell by" date was about two years ago
Deep soul searching:
northmorganBecause everything means too much, and despite the passing of time, nothing ever goes away. And if I were to reflect, try to come up with any sort of life assessment and see what it is that I contributed to the world, the answer would be this: stories about how desirable I tried to be, how beautiful everyone around me was, and how damaged I had become, handing the world back pieces of my broken self.
His fans are more amusing:
isavorcasWow.....@northmorgan, - sounds very familiar to me....I never really thought of myself as good looking; until people started to see positive changes in me. Unfortunately that became an obsession and I became very self centered and self absorption was overwhelming. If some didnt like me; I did everything I could to make sure that I had them convinced. In order to satisfy their interest; I became a compulsive liar. This became very strong resentments against those that had problems with me...even family. I isolated myself and told th never to speak to me until they changed for something better. I too had to rebuild me like a puzzle broken in a Million pieces with nobody to help me but me....now, I'm fuckin stronger than I have ever been....thats all a part of who we are, where we let it take us, when to deal with it and why it should change for the better. I hope this makes some sense to you because regardless of where, who,what and when we are.....LIFE will show up.. .I know now how to prepare, evaluate, think about expectations and outcomes in who will be effected.....I must be completely accountable for my part. I'm very thankful and grateful to God for resolution....Peace be with you.
toddstein88Bitch what does this mean I dropped out of third grade!
Give this bitch his Pulitzer and be done with it.
Oops sorry pls ignore link at r204.
Who is this dim wit milleniuel?
That's cute that you think he's a millennial R207
Would anyone even pay attention to this pretentious, immature, vapid egomaniac, morning if he wasn’t so handsome, with a hot body? Most gay men are just interested in his looks and not his cliched writing, a la Jacqueline Susann. Who can really relate to his hackneyed fiction, except for young, handsome, hung, muscled gay men who live in gay meccas, with wealth?
"To have no talent is not enough. Ya gotta get a gimmick."
You do realise those aren't his legs - no tattoos. That's whoever he's fucking this week.
The area where his upper abs meet his pecs is kinda weird.
R216 - Thank you! Hearing more about Novelist North Morgan is like an early Christmas!
Is anyone else getting adverts for his stupid book when they open grindr?
The Novelist’s Art of Observation: isn't that good. He identifies the Angel Gabriel as Jesus.
How did our literary giant spend the holidays?
Observing things, I'd imagine. He's not a bad writer but he seems sociopathic - it's pretty easy to imagine his characters are him (because of his blog)
What, no shirtless Christmas tree selfies? No pics of bows on his nipples?
Sorry, I don’t know these people, so it’s ignorant but they don’t look like people I’d want to know.
Well, go to the gym, move to LA, snort some coke and join a rec league sports team!
Report back to us in a year.
Thank god we have more posts about North Morgan. I was getting worried!
Did someone buy him a shirt for Xmas? He must be cold these days.
Less Than Zero with an Instagram account:
Konrad Platt needs to get out of town. Heartbroken after his boyfriend leaves him for another man, Konrad abandons his life in London for the warm sun and blue surf of LA. He occupies a refined world of hard abs, VIP parties, and designer drugs that’s constantly, endlessly documented on social media. You know him from your various feeds – sunkissed, gym ripped and always having a better time than you. Or is he?
In Into? North Morgan shines a coolly mesmerizing light on the modern generation of gay men that are living firmly outside the closet, freed from the shadow of AIDS and elevated by popular culture, but plagued by a new set of problems, insecurities and self-destructions.
Beneath the perfectly curated Instagram profile is a man spiraling out of control and desperate for meaningful connection. As Konrad goes from gay bar to gay pride, and swipes right from bed to bed, North Morgan spins a story in brutal, addictive prose of excess and love that’s like nothing you’ve ever read.
Please, more info on Up-and-Coming Gay Novelist North Morgan. I predict he will be a major force in literature in 2018.
R234 is North Morgan.
More like North Morgan's mom
R235 R236 - If you must know, I am the president of UCGNNMLAS, the Up-and-Coming Gay Novelist North Morgan Literary Appreciate Society. We have MANY members from most of the English-speaking countries. And Mr. Morgan even has a following in Malaysia. We have an intern who is coordinating efforts to translate Mr. Morgan's work into many exotic languages. All the major Asian ones. Plus Turkish and French even. Yes, he is that good. Of course, we find it an added bonus that Mr. Morgan looks terribly yummy without his shirt. But that should not detract from his literary excellence.
Call me when he reaches Hollinghurst levels
In 2018, I will be writing exclusively friend fiction about straight guys from the gym: “We started talking at the cable crossover. ‘Are you using that, bro?’, he said to me, pointing at the rope. ‘No, man, it’s all you’, I replied. A few weeks later, having developed a gym rapport, he came over to my house...and we ate. We discussed contemporary TV shows. At 10.30 he went home, and I retired to bed”
He's a regular Samuel Pepys.
He is both damn cute and old. Nuff said..
His banal 'literature' would do better as audiobooks with him narrating, nude.
If y’all are wondering what the hell all these future funk mallsoft means, here’s a guide:
Sorry, North, but are you now positioning yourself as an "#influencer?" That's #nice.
How about influencing some lube or sex toys and demonstrating them?
Easily washable sheets for your circuit orgies?
They all seem like nice tie-ins for your up-cum-ing epic.
Pink sneakers and inverted baseball caps look ridiculous on a man who’s pushing 40 years old.
Good God almighty, this is one tedious kaweeen.
North or the obsessive troll who’s inundating with these last ten posts R261
He's fucking shimmydown the Doctuh now?
such risable feigned informal jollity while being photographed shirtless.
He certainly is sexy, but his Insta-famous or not story is boring. In that world, we can look at 20 somethings who are sexier. I wish him luck, but his "art" needs to wow us now.
'but his "art" needs to wow us now. '
I'd settle for more erect cock pics.
The pic at R270 is his current Scruff profile pic.
Scruff? He looks like he bathes in Nair.
R273 screen name of his Scruff profile please
Don’t tell me it’s “London Preppy”
Really r273? Please share more!
He is less successful than Pippa Middleton's cook book and that was pretty shit
How many of his so-called friends will be there when he hits age 50?
I wanna bum him
When you fuck him, do you have to endure a private reading of his 'literature?'
screen name of his Scruff profile please
His username is merely a period ("." - without the quotes) but he frequently shows up in the Most Woof'd section. Look for him there and send him a message, I guess. And report back.
Also, his 'story' at R283 doesn't make any sense. The straight guy walked out of the gym with the towel still around his waist but without his pants? This is taking the towel dance phenomenon to ridiculous levels.
Mr Morgan is rather fond of the Unreliable Narrator device, or so it seems...
Thank you, I’ve found his Scruff profile r284
Hmmm. I cannot think of a thing to say to him.
Really? After all this time?
His early promise has turned out to be a bust
I loved his London Preppy blog...but that was 10 years ago
Now, he’s just a failed novelist who being supported by family money....at 38 years old
North is a cute but very middle-aged man who sorta, kinda writes I suppose. So what are we commenting on exactly?
His nascent Lesbian tendencies
His firm stalwart erection?
Has anyone on DL fucked him?
R294 can’t you come up with more of North’s cock pics, instead of his boring Instagram feed?
North is not that interesting unless he’s presenting hole.
He's a gran old gal, he;s a high flyin man.
But where does he stan?
I find his face worth ejaculating upon.
But has he lately?
Well, smell HER!!
He’s so self-important, smug, egotistical and pretentious.
I just read the plot summary and excerpt for his upcoming book on amazon, and...
It’s EXACTLY, word by word, his previous book. As in, he’s just changed the title and used another publisher.
R309: I think he had a falling out with his previous publisher, and his last novel with them was not well promoted/distributed, hence the new publisher and the new title for the ‘unread’ old work.
Oh, dear. Sadz. He should just do arty porn.
He is going straight & marrying a hot chick for his next book!
Who are the good younger gay writers right now? Who is the new generation of the Violet Quill era, post-Stonewall group? Because I know this North Morgan guy is certainly not one of them? I’d like suggestions for new modern gay classics.
R315, that's worthy of a new thread, and several old ones.
Don't besmirch other writers by grouping them in this thread. Let's just enjoy North's man-boobs and hefty cock.
^ Oops sorry, not really an Excerpt, but you can Pre-order your copy!
Vivid Imagination for Dialogue:
northmorganCoach, looking into my eyes: “If we pick you, I have to be convinced you’re not going to screw me. Can I trust you?” Me, staring back intently: “I’m going to be the best decision you ever made”
So does he have an Onlyfans page yet??
One can hope, R322.
God, that hideous cover! It's like a graphic artist's cat walked across the keyboard.
North: show your hot body on the cover, you idiot! Recall!
God! The EGO!!!!
^ So good to see North with a friend of color.
He's a rental.
Judging by r339 the steroids are giving him bitch tits.
No, it's just gravity.
For those not on FB, or whatever, the comment by LA DJ (and total hottie silver fox) James Cerne is great, and what the fawning article should have included:
"There's a PR firm in NYC that periodically sends me LGBT related promotions on the misguided assumption that i A)have influence in the world and B) would ever in a million years post a picture to instagram of myself wearing a Magic Mike 2 trucker hat.
Anyways, This week it was this book. I've been meaning to read a book for years now, so I took the plunge and WOW was this one awful. *Not* poorly written and confusing awful, but like unvaried repetitve ruminations on the same theme.
The character/author (Im not convinced that there's any differnce at all) is certainly well developed, but when you have a character who takes such cynical pride in their own self awareness, the author needs to know the character even better than they like to think they know themselves.
If only the novel provided ANY insight, through either direct commentary or manufactured circumstance to address our he(B)ro's problematic character in ways other than those he himself revels in wistfully, the novel could possibly be compelling.
Unfortunately it doesn't, so I will. He is misogynist, self pitying, maudlin in his attempts to discuss abstract concepts, unable to communicate any qualities of his male characters except their physical attributes, Relationships are portrayed bizarely- romances flourish and wither, feelings are hurt, without any accounting of the bonding moments where emotions were engaged to begin with, unable to write about women without scorn and disgust, unacknowledging of the intersectionality of race, class, gender and politics that allow him the priviledge of maintaining his hamster ball lifestyle without risk or threat (except that of ravaging time)
This book has the same basic problem as its protagonist, who wants to be both a perfect argument for his own existence, AND a perfect counterargument for his own existence. Its a zero sum game, where Mr. Morgan has cafefully carved out an existence where nothing dare disturb the perfect balance he has created between excessive self admiration and excessive self loathing, while this might be a useful survival tacic for a wealthy white gay male, it isnt so usefull for fiction, because in this world, nothing of any interest ever happens.
All of the above said, I do 100% believe that most of the guys you see on instagram that are described in this book do 100% exist like this. It is both a disappointment and a liberation to realize this
He’s a legend in his own mind. God, the EGO!
The saddest thing is that it's just a recycled version of his last "book," with a worse cover.
Of course Out jumped on the chance to feature a vapid Instaho.
R338: thanks for posting the review. Could you provide a link as well? TIA.
R337 he's young so he's pretending to be "over it" and self deprecating in an attempt to appear wise. It's really transparent though.
‘Into?’, narrated by Christian ‘Tom Riddle’ Coulson!
I think we now can safely assume that he's gay and has fucked North Morgan at least once. And they've had at least one, perhaps two vacations in Malaga.
So, R346, he's doing signings in porn & trinket shoppes?
Beautiful cock; lousy writing.
His book is called “Into?” ??? Omg, my sides! That is so hilariously embarrassing.
northmorganNothing flashy about my lifestyle. I keep my head down and grind day in and day out, trying to be the best version of myself! Daily successes lead to overall success! Take it day by day. When you make your goals so high, you do everything fathomable to reach them! Aim high! Settle for nothing else! Unless you accidentally double dose on GHB after you’ve just done a line of ketamine, in which case it’s probably best to try and make yourself sick and maybe take a break from being high for, like, half an hour #mondaymotivation #fitnessaddict #stayhungry
Living irony: so '90s.
He's talented writer, much more so than most.
"much more so(sic) than most."
Oh, really? I just see a beefy slut barely satirizing his own sex & circuit life.
Better than who? Proust? Ed White? Trollope? Dickens? Palahniuk?
Imagine hooking up with him, and then he wants to give you a book!
"Uh, thanks, no."
northmorganHello. So I’m getting messages daily from people who enjoyed the book telling me all sorts of nice things about it. And I really appreciate them and they make my day and I’ll always write back to everyone who writes to me, etc. Can I ask for an for an added favour? If you liked the book, could you please leave a rating / review on Amazon or Goodreads? Nothing spectacular, just share the message you sent to me there. Agents and editors and publishers can’t see my inbox, but they can see those reviews. And if I’m going to get a chance to write another one, these things matter. Thanks very much, etc, etc
Ben Baur? Of course he's a fan. He's got a lifetime of only being able to play characters like those in North's vapid rehashed books; WeHo hos and gym bunnies.
R366: it’s narrated by British actor Christian Coulson aka Tom Riddle in Harry Potter:
“Into?” pulls off a wild feat: a hyperactive transcript of a life spent online that takes you outside of your own. We have more texts, sexts, Grindr messages, FaceTime calls and Skype than spoken dialogue — all of which brilliantly recreate the itchy lure of the +1 notification, the little red pimple we can’t wait to pop.
Our narrator, Konrad Platt — who, with 42,000 followers, is an Instagram heavyweight — moves from London to Los Angeles after a big breakup. We’re drawn into an MDMA-fueled sex parade that roams from the gym to clubs to random men’s beds and even to Buffalo at one point. Buffalo!
Konrad speaks in a wandering, hyperbolic stream of consciousness, and his run-on sentences are annoying at the outset. But once you’re comfortable inside Konrad’s spazzy head, it’s a fun, and devastating, ride. He’s sharply funny, self-aware and heartbreakingly honest about internet culture. “At 6:45 a.m. I wake up again, go to the bathroom, take a mirror selfie demonstrating my abs looking particularly violent, because all of these pills dehydrate the hell out of me, and post it on Instagram. I wait until it’s had at least 350 likes before feeling like I’m worth something as a human being. This feeling lasts about two minutes.”
The author doesn’t hold back. Sex isn’t coy or offscreen, or built up like a reward for reading so many pages. It’s front and center; it’s hot, but sometimes terrible and awkwardly tearful; it can ruin us even as it compels us.
Konrad spends a lot of time at the gym, where some of the novel’s most cutting social commentary takes place. He obsesses over bulking up to fit into a subset of gay culture he identifies as “masc musc bros.” But it’s not as simple as having the right body type. We meet “masc” bros with deeply internalized homophobia and self-hatred that they smother in wine and MDMA (and Xanax, Ambien, coke, Klonopin). Konrad navigates a community that’s outwardly defined by inclusivity, open arms and no judgment, but he also finds it painfully exclusive and cliquey. “Heteronormative males are what … the majority of us want to be,” he says, and also what they fantasize about sexually. Konrad doesn’t want to live in a world where gay men are bullied into their own self-imposed stereotypes. “Yet here I am, going to the gym every day in a backward baseball cap supporting a sports team that I’ve never seen play.”
So, yeah, I fell in love with Konrad. Then I stalked Morgan on Instagram and wanted us to be best friends, but maybe not do as many drugs as Konrad does. “Into?” has a sense of urgency — “You must read this now!” I told a friend, shoving my copy into his hands. The novel is not clunking around with the literary halo of high advances and M.F.A. pedigree and overthought adjectives, but it’s a brutal story about loneliness in this hyperactive social media age that was bursting to be told.
"Alex Beggs is the senior digital editor of Bon Appétit."
So, it never made it to print, and was reviewed by a millennial female food writer from Texas.
Perfect setting for an early remainder bin.
Will North be offering his hefty cock in the Ramble?
This guy and Matthew Dempsey fascinate me for (mostly) the same reasons. They should do a collaboration of some sort.
How to Get Over Not Being Me, a tantric workshop and body cleanse with Matthew Dempsey and North Morgan.
$45 VIP oral session $95.
"The dads" = sugar daddies who pay for the food, the drugs, the parties.
more like a Tronjaned whore whose hoarse.
And, obviously, nobody ever told him HOW to write.
Hooray for NORTH Morgan.
God, THE EGO!
