There's been some actual news this week. The Movielife reformed, Fightstar returned from hiatus, and then there was Emoji Artworks. But sadly, today is our last #notthenews round-up of 2014. Try to hold back those tears while we recap all of this week's nonsense.
First up, All Time Low's Jack Barakat found himself next to an admirer this week.
The elderly woman sitting next to me on the plane just told me my headphones are really sexy. I may not be single for much longer— Jack Barakat (@JackAllTimeLow) December 18, 2014
Meawhile, I Am The Avalanche / The Movielife man Vinnie Caruana had to fend off some unwanted attention of his own.
Loose dog just ran directly at me and tried to bite my leg. Gave it a back heel he won't soon forget. He'll have sinus trouble, come Spring.— Vinnie Caruana (@vinniecaruana) December 13, 2014

The following entry into this week's #notthenews has everything: Neck Deep, Jeremy A Day To Remember and DOG. THERE'S A DOG.
Mallory Knox's Sam Douglas found himself having to have that 'birds and the bees' chat this week. With his mum.
Mum hired someone to clean our chimney this morning. I think it's time I sat her down and told her the truth about Santa.— Sam Douglas (@Sam_Mallory) December 16, 2014
Meanwhile, his mum got some famous followers.
Why have Yashin just followed my Mum? What's their game plan there?— Sam Douglas (@Sam_Mallory) December 16, 2014
Fightstar played their first show in actual years on Tuesday. Not before they doled out some festival cheer, however...
Here's a strange one: London folk-rock singer matey Rob Lynch launched his own 2015 calendar a few days back. It's called #standinginthewayoflove and it features 12 pictures of him standing in front of random couples making out.
Sure, Rob. Sure. If you want one, head over to standinginthewayoflove.bigcartel.com and order one.
Meanwhile, Panic! At The Disco man Brendon Urie got in the Friday mood.
Strong beard game is strong.
Gerard Way made us all think.

Bury Tomorrow's Davyd Winter-Bates made a proposition.
"I would get fully nude online right now for £2k" - @DanBuryTomorrow December 2014— Lord Christmas (@swearboxdj) December 18, 2014
Don't worry everybody, we've donated £2,001 for him to keep his clothes on forevermore. Bullet = dodged.
This exchange between Jono Blitz Kids and Joe Mallory Knox is just perfect.
@joesavins Fall Out Boy were named after Joe Savins.— Jono Yates (@jonoBLITZ) December 19, 2014
Oli Sykes' dad got down with it earlier today.

Bowling For Soup's Chris Burney donned his Captain Obvious outfit for this one.
People who say, "I'm not racist, but..." Yeah, you are fucking racist. #fuckwhitepeople— Chris Burney (@SoupBowlerChris) December 19, 2014
While New Found Glory's Ian Grushka just got plain weird.
That moment when your crush doesn't like your fart video on Instagram...— Ian Grushka (@gameusedguru) December 19, 2014
Also this week: thanks to A Day To Remember's Neil Westfall, the world now knows what lil' Jimmy McKinnon looked like.
Aaaaand finally: Don Broco showed us all what they'll be looking like in January after their Xmas blow-out.
This will be us after Xmas pic.twitter.com/QdPhqAiIN7— DON BROCO (@DONBROCO) December 19, 2014
The lesson here? All the #money, #power and #fame in the world can't hide four Christmas chins.
That's your lot for this week, and this year actually. We're off to drown in goose fat and eat mince pies until our intestines give up. Have a very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and we'll back in January with more actual news (and more non-news too). Oh, and if you spot one of these out in the wild....
...you know what to do.
