Get in touch or tip me off to a gay movie
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’ve been blogging for years. I wrote about my adventures in Prague in a blog called The Rent Boys Of Prague.
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.
My current project and main source of income is Fascinating Monsters. I make WordPress sites.
