Lollapalooza turned 25 this year, and to celebrate, GoPro teamed up with festival founder Perry Farrell to make a mini-documentary about his life and the rise of his band Jane’s Addiction. Ritual De Lo Habitual celebrated its 25th birthday last year, and in this video Farrell talks about the controversial cover art he designed for the album. Most of the footage was shot in Farrell’s home, and the rest features footage from Jane’s Addiction’s Lolla set over the summer.
GoPro plans to launch 32 short-form shows late this year and early in 2017. Some of the titles in production include the travel show “Beyond Places,” the music format “Off the Record,” and the family-themed “This Is Gonna Be Fun” and “Kids Save the World.” GoPro also teamed up with Real Madrid for a series on the legendary soccer club, and there’s one about New York motorcycle cops in training.
Eugene Mirman is that friend, interrupting people like Maria Bamford, Weird Al, W. Kamau Bell, and more in his audio series Hold On from Audible Channels. The show’s first two seasons were originally released exclusively on Audible, but are currently being made available in podcast format on iTunes and other popular audio content providers.

In the case of the 14-year-old Rhapsody, the company is today going after moms and dads by launching a new service that claims to be the first-ever streaming offering aimed at kids.
