Avicii‘s latest single from his debut album ‘True’ continues his oddly popular ‘porch-sitting, banjo-loving, American-folk meets rowdy, fist-pumping, Geordie Shore on a night out’ sound.

Eleanor Parker has died, aged 91. She’s probably best known for playing Baroness Elsa von Schrader in ‘The Sound of Music’ (a character commonly seen as a villain but who you’d actually feel sorry when you watch it as an adult).
‘Sound of Music’ co-star Christopher Plummer (Captain Von Trapp) said she was “one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever known – both as a person and as a beauty. I hardly believe the sad news, for I was sure she was enchanted and would live forever.”
Look at how mean the kids were to her character!
Eleanor was nominated for three Oscars and starred in films like ‘Caged’, ‘Detective Story’, ‘Interrupted Melody’, ‘Scaramouche’, ‘Valley of the Kings’ and ‘The Naked Jungle’.
She was married four times and is survived by her four children.
