Summer is winding down but there’s still some sweet produce left out there. Go grab some goddamn nectarines and make this pasta while you still can, before all-pumpkin-everything season starts.
LATE SUMMER TOMATO NECTARINE PASTA 
Serves 4
1 pound pasta*
¼ cup pasta water**
 
1 pound cherry tomatoes, sliced in half, about 3 cups 
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium nectarines, chopped into bite-sized 
pieces, skin on, about 1 ½ cups
2 cloves of garlic
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
½ cup basil sliced into thin strips 
Cook the pasta according to the package directions or your instincts, whateverthefuck you normally do. Measure out your pasta water like we tell you below and set that shit aside. 
While your pasta is cooking, grab a large skillet or wok and warm it up over a medium heat. Add the oil. Throw in the cherry tomatoes and cook those little fuckers until they start to shrivel up a bit, about 4-5 minutes. Add the nectarines, garlic, and salt and cook for another minute more just to warm up the nectarines. Yeah, garlic and nectarines. Calm the fuck down and just trust the method. Now turn off the heat. Add the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar, then toss in the pasta. Start mixing that shit up as you add in the pasta water.
Fold in the basil and taste. Add more lemon juice, vinegar, basil, or salt. You know what you want to get the flavors right by you. Serve right away with some extra basil on top so it looks legit as fuck.
If you end up with leftovers, you can also enjoy this motherfucker cold. It’s damn delicious and involves no effort.
* Spaghetti or angel hair is best. Whole wheat is great if you roll like that.

** No, this isn’t some weird, fancy shit you buy at the store. Right before your pasta is done cooking, take a metal measuring cup and scoop up some of that water right in the pot and set it aside. All the starch in the water is great for filling out a light sauce so you don’t have to add a shitload of oil. You’re fucking welcome for that trick.

With El Pintor, Interpol don’t sound as much like Interpol as they do a band that really wants to be Interpol; it’s a sad notion for anyone who once held this band’s music dear to their hearts, but taking into account what came before, it’s a miracle that Interpol still exist in this capacity at all.

I’m mostly just excited that someone still considers “hillbilly” to be a viable insult in 2014.

My home on the web v. 4.0 (next-to-zero effort edition). Music, tech, science, art, vegetarian eats, books, food politics, lifehacking, the law, San Francisco, whippets (and dogs generally), fennec foxes, technology, internet memes, webcomics, and sometimes origami and/or hedgehogs.... in other words, a mishmash of stuff that was of interest to me, and, possibly, is of interest to you.
