Music Video Pick: Dua Lipa – New Rules

Today’s TasteTV music video pick is by Dua Lipa, called “New Rules.”

The song was recently ranked as the official UK NUMBER 1 song and the first solo female #1 since Adele’s “Hello.”

The staccato beat is refreshing, with a repetitiveness that is catchy but also improvisational. The lyrics are a great match with the actual music video visuals, which show a love sick disenchanted woman learning the new rules of relationships and hookups from her various friends, and then eventually passing them on to others in need. The well synchronized dance routines are choreographed yet spontaneous, ranging in locales from a hotel bedroom, to the bathroom, to the hotel swimming pool.

The video filters and styles have a flashy nouveau tropical vibe that makes the viewers feel cool and hip, especially when seen with the multi-hued designer sunglasses worn by her diverse multi-ethnic ‘posse’ of advisers and friends.

In this video, the ladies literally walk on water. Once you start humming, “I’ve got rules, I’ve got rules,” you’ll find the Dua Lipa ear bug has been caught for this song. The rules are contagious.

She is currently on tour around Europe, Asia and the United States. We certainly look forward to seeing her act live!

Prepare for Natural Emergencies with the Water Filtration Backpack

We often take civilization and running water for granted, but there are times when you may be short of both. This could be either when taking a trip into the wilderness or an underdeveloped region, or if affected by a natural disaster like an earthquake, fire or hurricane.

Fortunately, a little preparation can go a long way, and a new product such as the HydroLite Packable Filtration Backpack is a perfect tool to keep you hydrated with drinkable fresh water.

Whether it’s tap water in the Andes to a refill on your next trail run, clean drinking water is just a sip away with Matador’s new HydroLite Packable Filtration Backpack.

Matador has partnered with HydraPak® and Sawyer®, leaders in hydration and filtration technology, to integrate a technical water filter and hydration system into this packable backpack.

360 Degree Food Festival: Eat Drink SF

Going to a food festival is always a great opportunity. Being able to test a new type of camera while there is basically icing on the cake. In this case, it was the Insta360 Nano. The Insta360 shoots pictures and HD video in 360 degrees. The images can be used in Virtual Reality (VR) goggles, as well as on sites such as YouTube.

A food festival like Eat Drink SF is the perfect place, because you have a wide variety of food and drink, and lot of people and places to capture.

We set up our camera at various partner tables around the event, and produced short 30 second 360 degree videos from each. The quality of the initial videos were impressive, although we have to admit that after editing, export, and upload to YouTube they did lose a fair amount of resolution.

If you couldn’t go, or even if you could, take a look at what we saw.
