    This is hilarious! I’ve totally been both versions.

    I kept waiting for the 33 year old to chime in and start singing about her cats.

    I love this video; sadly it is the story of my life! Even so it is great and I have been singing “31’s” part all night…of course I just turned 31 so it is even more poignant ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Brandon says:

    Fantastic! That must have been hard to film with out breaking.

  15. J.L. says:

    Is it weird that I’m more attracted to the angry, hate filled 31 year old? Is it weird that it’s because she’s angry and full of hate?

  16. Matt says:

    Really enjoyed you atthe nerdist taping this weekend!

  17. Stacy says:

    I’m waiting for the sequel where the 38 year-old woman tells the other two that they were better off single.

    Please put this song on Bandcamp so I can purchase it!

  19. […] Their fast paced folk-comedy is not unlike Flight of the Conchords, with well crafted catchy and humorous songs.ย  It saddens me to hear that people donโ€™t know about them, because I just canโ€™t understand who […]

    You two are so funny. I think you are going to end up on a TV show, maybe SNL.

  22. Morocco says:

    I have not laughed so hard in a long time. Thank you again, hilarious as always. More please!

    You guys are the best!!! I love your wit/creativity and above all your fearlessness. Keep it up!!!

    I saw G&O for the first time on the Nerdists show featuring female nerds. I was blown away when they sang 29/31. After their segment, I got online immediately and found their website and listened to all their songs.

    I am now a fan. I love them.

  25. Monica says:

    Just heard you guys on Savage Love – I can’t pick which song is my favorite but OMG your new one about break-ups! Loved how every refrain elicited more shocked murmurs from the crowd. ๐Ÿ˜€

  26. Gary Kline says:

    To all the 30-somethings. I married my wife when she was 35 and divorced with two kids. Our 23rd anniversary is coming up soon.

    To all the guys – 30-something women are amazing.

  27. sean parker says:

    Saw them in Nashville. Loved the anal song:)

  28. Amber says:

    Fabulous! I have a friend right now how is just like your 31 year old version….watching this made me laugh so much thinking of her. Thanks for brightening my day.

  29. slughog says:

    Riki should start a punk band!

  30. Sarah says:

    You guys are amazing. I’m 29 and looking forward to my life being over in a couple months. Lol

  31. […] I haven’t found them before but better late than never. I found them after someone linked to this video (“29/31″) without comment/explanation, so I shall (by and large) do the […]

  32. Tyler says:

    I love these chicks! They’re like an educated, female version of Tenacious D

  33. Moira says:

    You guys are so funny! And pretty and kind! Basically, you guys are the BEST! Thanks for posting the funny, awkward, empowering videos you’ve chosen to post!

  34. Nicki Yung says:

    Any idea when this will be available for purchase anywhere? I LOVE this song and can’t find it anywhere legit and it would be nice to have on my itunes so when it gets stuck in my head i can listen without having to fast forward through savage lovecast to get it!

  35. William C Sallai says:

    In comedy there is truth. This must have been a difficult one to play through in character for Kate while Riki explodes. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing you live and look forward to seeing you again. Wonderful, Ladies, just wonderful.

  36. HAFSNT says:

    Funny women are so sexy at any age. Tall drink or short firecracker.
