Category: Hypnos Web Site Updates


So far, all news updates and blog entries here have been written by me — that is, Hypnos founder Mike Griffin. Much of the work of actually running Hypnos, including the handling of mail orders, and adding new CDs to our store, is handled by my wife, Lena Griffin.

We’re going to start involving Lena in even more important functions, first of which will be the posting of updates to this blog. In the past, blog entries here said they were posted by the blog user “hypnos” which was the only login we used.

Now, to differentiate blog posts by myself and by Lena, we’ve created two new user logins. At the bottom of each post, you’ll see “Written by mgriffin” or “Written by lenagriffin” to tell you which is which. This should enable more frequent updates to the blog. We’re also going to get Lena more involved in special deals and offers on the Hypnos Online Store, as well as other activities behind the scenes.

I’ll still be very involved with Hypnos, especially in getting new CDs ready to release, but more and more we realize important things aren’t getting done when they should because of how busy I am. Lena will do a much better job taking care of business!

Reminder About Closeout Sales

We’re running out of more and more items in our store, particularly items in our CLOSEOUT section. Yesterday, we sold our last copies of ten different CDs. We do remove items from stock as they sell out, so if you see something listed in the store there’s a 99% chance that it’s in stock.

Sometimes, though, we have only a single copy left of something, and two or three people order it within a few hours. In a case like that, we have to give the last remaining copy to the first order that arrived, and let the other person or people know that we don’t have any copies left. Of course we refund their money, but they’re disappointed.

This is just another reminder that the point of our CLOSEOUT sale is to get rid of all remaining stock of these items. Some may be restocked in the future (after we move to our new online store), while most will not. If you see something in there and don’t want to miss out, please don’t wait! We hate having to disappoint customers by saying, “Sorry, you just missed out.”

Six Hypnos CDs Running Low

In the middle of all these posts about price reductions in our ongoing effort to get rid of most of the CDs we sell (at least temporarily), here’s a different kind of update.

These six Hypnos CDs are starting to run low, and we know how people hate it when they want a CD and discover it’s out of print. So here’s your warning! If you want any of these — and they include work by some of our most popular artists — snap a copy up before it’s too late. You can browse through the Hypnos section on our store, or access these items directly via the links below.
