I think the ISU wants to keep ice dancing fans as far away from depression as possible .And as a result they will surely lead us to depression:rofl:

I found an article about the uplifting effect in art.

http://www.northshorelij.com/NSLIJ/The+arts+have+uplifting+effect+for+people+regardle ss+of+thei

So if they use the term as it's used in this article,they really mean happy programs,that put a smile on our face.But how can they really dictate what makes a person feel good.For example,classical music is considered non uplifting ?Or will they make all teams dance to "Ode to Joy"?

They rewarded the Shibs for what I think they mean by it.

That "upifting" rule depresses the heck out of me, and the "understandable" rule escapes my comprehension :(

I am sure the issuing of communications is just a conspiracy with the timber industry to keep people printing more paper.

Stupid rules becuase they are so subjective. And if you are busy concentrating on judging, how can you pay attention to the audience being depressed or confused.

Could someone suggest to me which programs of the past might be considered not "understandable" and not "uplifting"?

I'd prefer last season's program for reference, but would be fine with older programs.

I am no native English speaker so I may be off base but isn't uplifting not meant to be something like happy/clappy/perky but more "morally erecting" (which is the direct translation from German) which could mean pretty much everything apart from elevator music?

I think anything that made me erect, morally or any other way should get bonus points. Ladies with too much nudity would not do this. Men on the other hand. Wait it's ice... shrinkage. :duh:

And exactly how are they going to determine what is "understandable to the audience"?

Asking Phil Hersh? :hat1:

They will put voting machines at each seat in the audience , who will vote whether they understood the program or not. LMAO
