Bird Does Astounding Impression of Laser Gun Battle (VIDEO)

11/11/2014 AT 01:00 PM EST

Nature is crazy.

That’s not exactly a top-notch scientific observation, but we’re still reeling a little from watching this bird imitate the sound of a laser battle.

The lyrebird is an Australian bird known for its impressive powers of imitation. They’ve been recorded doing their uncanny renditions of all kinds of incongruous sounds, like a chainsaw and a car alarm, but this video might take the cake.

Wen Hao Lee, a student from Malaysia, shot this video at the Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. The lyrebird starring in it has a fairly impressive selection of noises at his disposal, but the laser gun noise he debuts while fanning his tail at the camera is probably our favorite.

So here’s the real question: Is he trying to fight the camera … or mate with it?

Glenn Beck Reveals 5-Year Health Battle That Made Him Feel ‘Crazy’

11/11/2014 AT 12:30 PM EST

Glenn Beck has revealed a shocking secret he has kept for five years: He’s battling several serious medical conditions that have wreaked havoc on his brain functioning.

The conservative pundit came clean about his health problems on his network, TheBlaze TV, on Monday night, explaining why he was slowly slipping away from the spotlight – and how he has miraculously recovered.

“I was told by doctors just this last spring … that I could no longer work the way I had been working because it was literally killing me,” he said, tearing up.

About five years ago, Beck, now 50, began “to have a string of health issues that quite honestly made me look crazy,” he said. “And quite honestly, I have felt crazy because of them.”

The right-wing media personality was plagued by vocal cord paralysis, couldn’t sleep but never felt tired and struggled with his eyesight (one symptom he did disclose publicly). He’d forget names and faces and suffered from seizures.

“We didn’t know at the time what was causing me to feel as though, out of nowhere, my hands or feet or arms or legs would feel like someone had just crushed them,” he said, “or set them on fire, or pushed broken glass through my feet.”

After countless medical tests and consultations with the country’s top doctors, Beck moved his family from New York to Texas, discovering a local rehab facility, Carrick Brain Centers. He was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, adrenal fatigue, and Addison’s disease, among other ailments.

But now, he seems to be back on track.

“After months of treatment and completely changing the way I eat, sleep, work and live, along with ongoing hormone treatment and intensive physical therapy, I have reversed the process,” he said. “Some of the physical scars will be with me for the rest of my life … but my brain is back online in a big way.”

Julianne Hough Spills on Her Latest DWTS Look: ‘This Dress Is Perfection’

11/11/2014 at 11:50 AM ET

Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough had just as much fun accessorizing her latest look with stylist Anita Patrickson as she did picking out the gorgeous white Pucci gown. Below, read on for more on how the team created such an elegant look (plus, see the adorable photo of her pups sleeping in the trailer!).

For her ninth week behind the judges’ desk, Hough chose a sleek Pucci gown, featuring a sexy front slit. “I adore Pucci and this dress is perfection,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “I love wearing white so that’s always a draw. The shape of this dress made me feel elegant and classy. We also had so much fun with the jewelry and beauty choices as the options were endless. In the end we choose to accent it with statement gold cuffs and an edgy mix of gold earrings.”

Patrickson says that the finding the accessories was a highlight this week. “The fun part was picking the chunky gold cuffs,” she shares. “They are such statement pieces and it’s fun to do that with Julianne as we tend to gravitate towards more delicate jewelry.”

She adds of the gown, “This look is all about clean elegant lines. Its a little Grecian and a nod to the minimalist trend we’ve been loving so much this season. Julianne loved it immediately. The neckline is so sleek and sophisticated and shows off her gorgeous arms.”

Hairstylist Riawna Capri also had a clear vision for Hough’s hair. “We wanted to recreate a similar look from the 2013 Golden Globes, a smooth fohawk with side texture,” she tells PEOPLE. But that new haircut made things a bit difficult. “Since we just cut her hair last week, the biggest challenge was getting all her little short neckline hairs to stay up and in place. She seriously has about 25 bobby pins in there and half a bottle of hairspray just to keep them up.”

On the beauty front, Hough’s makeup artist Spencer Barnes says the combination of the Grecian-esque white dress and gold cuffs helped inspire her look. “I wanted to keep her skin warm and bronzy, with copper and gold shimmering hues on her eyes. I relied on Kevyn Aucoin’s ‘The Loose Shimmer Shadow’ to help me achieve this look. She felt radiant and elegant.”

If you want to try something similar at home, Barnes encourages you to whip out the bronzer. “It isn’t just for summer,” he explains. “Don’t be afraid to wake up the skin and add subtle dimension to the face. Using shimmering metallics on the eyes with a mono-chromatic pallet allows the interplay of sheen and luster to create restrained drama.”

The best part of getting ready together (aside from her adorable dogs Lexi and Harley being on set)? “Julianne kept us entertained as she belted out ‘Hopelessly Devoted To You’ from Grease,” Barnes shares. Adds Capri, “Julianne craziness is the best. She gets in these awesome funny weird moods and keeps us all laughing for hours.”

Are you loving Hough’s look this week? Is it her best yet? Share your thoughts below.
