Talking Help choosing a domain name

I need help choosing a domain. The main reason I want my own is so I can have a pretty email address, run my own DNS servers and not have to depend on no-ip or dyndns, and finally come up with a decent name for the blog.

I'm hosting a small blog/tech/random site, my email server (seriously, google is evil ), a few game servers, some miscellaneous files, and other things. I've decided I want a .net TLD, but everything cool that I can think of has already been taken.

This is where you all come in, I'm not that creative, and I need help. Someone find a cool *.net I can call home.

I don't know, what kind of name are you after, something that defines the type of websites you're hosting? (tech something I guess? lol) Or something cool sounding but unrelated? I'm struggling to imagine a name, what names have you tried that were already taken?

I draw pictures of mecha for fun.

Making up good names for them takes practice, and I daresay I've gotten pretty good at it.

Ideas anyone?

If it helps, here's the site (still under construction, can't get my SQL database to behave): The Landing Pad (Name will be changed to match domain)

Smash random nouns together until something works? Rubberbandcheque? Glassphonemarker?
