Reminiscent of something one would experience on a trip on a psychedelic substance. acid, shrooms, salvia, maybe even skunk weed (hey you smoke enough of that...). Can be used in reference to sights such as one would see (patterns, fractals, M.C. Escher, Robert Crumb cartoons), music that evokes feelings of trippin', even heady thoughts similar to ones one would think of while tripping.
Ok seriously if you haven't tripped, you haven't tripped and you don't know what it's like. Period. There should be a law against kids throwing the word "trippy" around like candy, except that it's not like millions of americans follow every single law anyway, felonies be damned. Actually I follow the law and I don't smoke marijuana, just clean, healthy tobacco.... Whatever.
Dude: Man, like... why do millions of people follow bullshit religions, when like... don't they know they're just making stuff up in their heads? Like... how could anyone think they talk with Jesus in their heads? That's like schizophrenia... man... I don't get some people.
Girl: you may be zonked on shrooms but I dig what you're saying. That's some trippy stuff
Pink Floyd, The Flaming Lips, Hendrix, all decidedly trippy music
I suppose trippy is a very subjective word
Kid: Man, that Gantz Graf DVD is trippy!
Other guy: Yeah, I kno... wait... since when have you tripped on anything?
Kid: I don't do drugs.
Other guys: ... wtf?
