You can always go for an .email domain.

While acknowledging that some of the new domains are quite neat (.email, .bar, .club, .social, etc) I fear that the large amount of new extentions are creating confusion. A lot of people have been used to .com and their own country's extention for such a long time that they'll be confused when being exposed to a relatively unheard of (because it's new) extention. I'd be curious to see numbers of registrations and actively used domains (= actively used for email and/or websites) of all those new TLDs.

Of all new domains, .art would be tempting for me, if it would become available anytime soon that is. (last time I checked, it was still not assigned)

Maybe in a couple of years new extentions will become widely used by famous websites or in commercials and people will get used to it. But right now I'd still check my country's ccTLD and the "good old" gTLDs (.com, .net, .org, .info) first.
