About Rick Powell, The Cinesexual


I’m Rick Powell, an American serial expat living with metastasized colorectal cancer in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I graduated from Southern Illinois U with a degree in Cinema & Photography.  My first Super-8 film was called The Way Love Moves. My senior film project was called Pictures of Maleness. I was naked in it and it also featured my straight roommate Janet in male drag. I lost all my films somewhere along the road.

I like movies. I was in and worked on one called Go Fish. Finnish documentary filmmaker Markku Heikkinen made a movie about me called Public Service.

I’ve been blogging for years. I wrote about my adventures in Prague in a blog called The Rent Boys Of Prague. I wrote almost a million words in diary form.

My last project was Juanele AR, a bilingual blog covering the arts and artists of Buenos Aires. I founded, edited, designed, art-directed and photographed for Juanele. Lots of other cool folks did too. I hope to bring it back someday. You can find some of the old posts living on My Beautiful Air. (Open your eyes in Buenos Aires.)

I created this online literary journal  about English-speaking life in Spanish-speaking countries but it turns out there aren’t very many good writers who want to get paid for that sort of thing.

I also founded the San Telmo Art Walk, a 3-hour walking tour of Buenos Aires’ oldest and most bohemian barrio. Later I sold it to another company and bought myself a MacBook Air.

My current project and main source of income is Fascinating Monsters. I do still make WordPress sites.

Buy from Amazon to help me out.
